Like any living document, the Endangered Species Act is imperfect and subject to refinement. Among its flaws: Even some environmentalists say the 35-year-old act is cumbersome, and protective lists are too difficult to update efficiently. But any refinements should be enacted by Congress, not by a lame- duck president. According to a report by The Associated Press, President Bush's administration is "proposing changes that would allow federal agencies to decide for themselves whether...

By Andrew Weeks, The Times-News, Twin Falls, Idaho Aug. 4--Sometimes nature can use a little boost. High water levels and faster flows along parts of the Snake River -- such as the Hagerman stretch below Lower Salmon Falls Dam -- is giving a boost to young steelhead trout and salmon as they make their way to the Pacific Ocean. "That's why the water is up," said Randy McBride, owner of High Adventure River Tours in Hagerman. Water levels along McBride's 10-mile float tour, from...

By Hal Bernton, Seattle Times Jul. 31--The National Marine Fisheries Services will review the effects of 37 pesticides on salmon and steelhead under a lawsuit settlement reached Wednesday with environmental and fishing groups. The federal fisheries agency will complete the reviews over a four-year period.

By Karl F. Moffatt For The New Mexican State Department of Game and Fish staff are headed back into the Valle Vidal and Vermejo Park this summer for another shot at sterilizing streams to be restocked later with native Rio Grande cutthroat trout.

A federal judge has ruled that California's struggling salmon population has been harmed by water diversions in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Oliver Wanger in Fresno, Calif., stops short of halting water diversions, The San Francisco Chronicle reported Saturday. The ruling is the latest court decision ordering state and federal authorities to overhaul a water system that courts have said ignores fisheries and the environment. Wanger's 118-page...

A federal judge has concluded that California's water operations are driving some salmon runs toward extinction -- but he declined to intervene. The order, issued late Friday by U.S. District Judge Oliver Wanger in Fresno, contained both good news and bad news for environmentalists and commercial salmon fishing advocates, representatives of those groups said. Although they did not win immediate measures to protect the fish, the judge's conclusions mean regulators will be forced to impose...

By Rob Rogers, The Marin Independent Journal, Novato, Calif. Jul. 18--The latest stage of the $5 million effort to turn the former Waldo Giacomini Dairy near Point Reyes Station into a 550-acre wetlands wasn't scheduled to begin until late this week. But time and tide wait for no one, and a seven-foot tide July 1 broke through one of the levees surrounding the former pasture, creating unexpected problems for project workers. "We went out there andethere was a three-foot leopard shark...

I learned the basics of line and tackle fishing from my late uncle Oscar Portuondo, first in Cuba and then in Miami, where my husband and I often joined him at his favorite fishing spots on the bay side of Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park or the old Rickenbacker Causeway Bridge. My uncle was a man of the tropical sea, but I know he would have found great joy in the sweet, cold-water bounty of the Delaware River Valley in Pennsylvania, where I own a small vacation home. This beautiful...

By Michael Kilkie of the Jefferson Restaurant The more you learn about a subject, the less of a fear it will hold for you - and that goes for food and cooking too.
