PBS Report: “Trout and Drought”

November 2nd, 2008 · No Comments

PBS aired a report Friday called Trout and Drought.  This report examines the relationship between global warming and the Montana trout fisheries.  I thought the report was informative, featuring interviews with fly fishing guides, farmers, and politicians.

A couple of key points:

  • A longer summer drought increases water temperatures, which we know is not good for trout
  • Trout fishing brings $300 million to the Montana economy. Agriculture $2.4 billion. This answers one of my frustrations, water management that optimizes for agriculture.
