I am from east Texas, and have been in Canyon Lake seven years. I fish this beautiful lake at least once a week. I have seen the signs at the lakes on the Sabine River Basin warning of mercury poisoning in all of the fish. The biggest culpript is the coal burning power plants and everybody you talk to knows this. The pollution has finally gotten to Canyon Lake this makes me awfully sad. It was one of the few lakes in our great state that wasn't affected. People elected to office need to do their jobs and get pollution contols on these plants. TRNCC has given a free ride to these guys for too long. It affects stripers and gar now. How long before it starts affecting all the fish and then our drinking water?

My aunt who lives here at the lake used to fish a lot too. But since the pollution in the water is that high is not worth it anymore.
I'm always asking myself why people care so less for their environment. We all live here and our children have to do so too. It's time to make some mayor changes in our thinking. And no, I'm not an environment enthusiast. But I know that we have to take care about it.
I like big cars (and they have a big fuel consumption) but I know I should try to save energy where I can do it. For example new house insulation (protect the environment and saves money). There a lots of things we can do whthout loosing our loved comfort. And the best is: With lots of things we can also save money (solar cessl on the roof for electricity and warm water). So please think about it.

I have been researching east Texas lakes, Missouri, Arkansas, and even the great lakes. All state game departments are giving the same warning. They say Texas coal fired plants have put mercury as far north as Great Lakes, due to wind currents that blow south to north. It's really sad for me. I retired and want to move to a lake and catch fish to eat as my primary activity. I guess it's mostly catch and realease now.
