  1. As a kid I used to catch salmon in that hole. It will never be open for fishing again. In fact they shut down the entire valley up from there and military special forces have done training up there recently. My highschoop friend worked there and I've seen large cracks and leaks in the dam dam. Had to go anyways.

  2. Seems to me they should have lowered the lake level slowly over a period of time. This would allow the vegatation to catch up as the lake lowered to prevent erosion.

  3. could people simply open the gate to let the water drain before blowing it up ? the sudden release of immense amount of water and drop in water level inside the reservoir for sure killed lots of fishes and wild animals ! how could the state government be so stupid !?
