Got an email from Trout Unlimited today:

The US Army Corps of Engineers has received a "404" application from Sanpete County to build a dam on Gooseberry Creek to divert water from five prime fisheries, essentially ruining them:

Gooseberry Creek (large cutts and good rainbows)
Upper Fish Creek (cutts and rainbows) above Scofield Reservoir.
Scofield Reservoir (cutts, tigers, etc.) is a Blue Ribbon Fishery.
Lower Fish Creek below Scofield Reservoir (awsome Brown Trout) is a Blue Ribbon Fishery. [P.S. As I write this, Fish Creek is 100% dry and dewated, and the dam is not yet built! imagine the lack of water if the dam were to be built.]
Price River
Have you fished any of these? Do you care if these fisheries are ruined?
A dam would be detriment to stream health and anglers. Here contact info if you have 5 minutes:

Isn't there already a Gooseberry dam/lake?

Do you have any more information? This "call to action" seems to be short on specifics.


Also, calling Scofield a "blue ribbon fishery" is a bit of a stretch right now. Maybe a blue ribbon chub fishery.
