#18 The Mighty Colorado River
In episode #7 of The DrakeCast, we heard about the threatened Menominee River on the border between Michigan’s UP and Wisconsin. This river had unfortunately found itself on American River’s list of the ten most endangered rivers in the United States.
In this episode, we look at the unfortunate body of water that occupies the number one spot on that list – The Colorado River. Throughout the story, we’ll chat with fly shop owners, fishermen, conservationists, and flyfishing industry leaders as we try to figure out how the Colorado gained such an unsightly title.
The Colorado is a huge river, but it also represents the perils that all of the world’s rivers face right now.
Many thanks to Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures and Scott Fly Rods for their continued support of The DrakeCast.
A big shout out to Fishpond and American Rivers for their help with this episode and their role in keeping our rivers healthy.
