The San Lorenzo River is so polluted from leaky SLV septic tanks, why wouldn't it migrate the heck outta there?

Freeze boots and fishing clothing every time a fisherman moves from one spot on the river to another?..It's not going to happen.
Fish and Game is going to have to kill off everything in the river and let it start anew.
They did something similar to the upper Kern river to protect the Golden trout breeding areas.
Or we just accept the San Lorenzo is a dead's almost that way now.

They run around shrieking about secondhand smoke
and all manner of nonsensical "sky is falling"
junk, but when a real ecological disaster like this happens it's described as "pesky and troublesome."
Oh my! That's taking a hard line isn't it! Where
is all the righteous anger when it's needed?

Ironic how its spread by the very fisherman who will be hurt by its presence.

Responsible fishing for the win.
