Brian Mahoney has been eyeing public access for properties along the Colorado riverfront since 1986, but he's always had his sights set on an elusive, high-rising parcel that just happens to include the junction of the Colorado and Gunnison rivers.

There have been notable overtures by Mahoney and others in the past to buy the property -- owned for years by salvage yard operator Dean Van Gundy, and now owned by his son Randy -- but a confluence of factors may be stirring together now to make some sort of sale of the property a reality.

In Colorado River's Final Hundred Miles, Small Signs Of Life Return

QuoteLAGUNA GRANDE, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO -- It's mid-morning in the Sonoran desert and already the temperature is rising.
Karen Schlatter suggests we find some shade, a relatively easy task at Laguna Grande, a restoration site along the Colorado River's historic channel in Mexico. It's managed by the Sonoran Institute, where Schlatter is associate director of the binational environmental group's Colorado River Delta program.

As The Colorado River Basin Dries, Can An Accidental Oasis Survive?

QuoteJuan Butrón-Méndez navigates a small metal motorboat through a maze of tall reeds here in the Mexican state of Sonora. It's nearing sunset, and the sky is turning shades of light blue and purple.
The air smells of wet earth, an unfamiliar scent in the desert.
 

Luke Runyon reports from the Colorado River's "accidental wetland." Butrón-Méndez lives nearby and works for the conservation group Pronatura Noroeste as a bird monitor. (Pronatura's work receives financial support from the Walton Family Foundation, which also funds KUNC's Colorado River coverage.)

Five Years Later, Effects Of Colorado River Pulse Flow Still Linger

QuoteAN LUIS RIO COLORADO, MEXICO -- From inside a small airplane, tracing the Colorado River along the Arizona-California border, it's easy to see how it happened.
As the river bends and weaves through the American Southwest, its contents are slowly drained. Concrete canals send water to millions of people in Phoenix and Tucson, Los Angeles and San Diego. Farms, ribbons of green contrasted against the desert's shades of brown, line the waterway.

Further downstream, near Yuma, Arizona, the river splits into threads, like a frayed piece of yarn.

Changing water flow leads to more bugs in the Grand Canyon

QuoteLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Ted Kennedy sums up what he sees along the river in the Grand Canyon: "It's buggy out there."
That is to say, an experiment to change the flow of water from a dam near the Arizona-Utah state line appeared to boost the number of aquatic insects that fish in the Colorado River eat.
 
Scientists are hoping to better understand those results with a second bug flow experiment that started this month and will run through August. They found that releasing low, steady flows of water from Glen Canyon Dam over the weekend gives the eggs that bugs lay on rocks, wood or cattails just below the water's surface a better chance of survival. Otherwise, they might dry out and die within an hour.

"It's a powerful reminder that flows really matter, that just a couple days a week of steady flow can illicit massive emergence," said Kennedy, a research ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey.

50 years of restoring Donegal Creek wild trout stream heartbreakingly undone in hours


QuoteNature is a great healer. It also can be achingly fragile, as fly fishers who love Donegal Creek in East Donegal Township found out last weekend.

One minute, the spring-fed stream that has been lovingly restored into a wild trout stream over five decades was flowing peacefully through rolling Lancaster County farmland. Then something toxic came barreling downstream near the stream's confluence with Musser Run, wiping out, within hours, nearly every kind of fish, crayfish and aquatic insect along a 4.5-mile stretch.

On Sunday, when fly anglers who had caught rising trout only days before drove over to see the damage for themselves, they were dumbstruck and broken-hearted by what they saw. Wild and stocked trout, their beautiful stripes and colorful specks already bleached from their bodies, lay on sandy banks or bobbed in unnatural positions in the water. The carnage also included sculpin, dace, chubs, minnows, salamanders and all manner of aquatic insects.

Hmmm. Sounds like the Smiff.

The Mill Brook in West Tisbury on Martha's Vineyard used to run "thick with fish," but that's no longer the case. As its waters warm from pollution and climate change, the trout, which require cool water temperatures, are becoming less and less numerous. Environmentalists say the trout are indicator of a challenged ecosystem.
