Meet the Penn State deans: Richard Roush talks fishing, ice cream — and immortality

>>As part of a collaborative effort with Penn State, which is releasing a monthly video on school deans and their perspectives and passions, the Centre Daily Times is continuing a lighthearted Q&A series that highlights a different dean every month in the hopes the local community gets to know them outside of the classroom. Up next: Richard Roush, dean of Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences. Roush, who holds a doctorate from Cal Berkeley, joined Penn State in 2014. He is internationally recognized for research into insect pests and weeds, and his most recent published work came on the spotted laternfly. He previously served as the University of Melbourne's dean of the School of Land and Environment, and he's currently focused on key issues such as water quality and job development. He also loves fishing, whether it's fly-fishing in local waterways, deep-sea fishing on the West Coast or wherever else.

Murray's Fly Shop celebrates six decades in Edinburg

Guests are not allowed to view images in posts, please Register or Login
>>>Harry Murray remembers tying fishing flies in the back of his drugstore in Edinburg between filling prescriptions back in 1962.

Fresh out of college, Murray kept both business and pleasure close by. Most of his business space was for the pharmacy, but he maintained a small portion of the shop for fly-fishing equipment.

Six decades later, the drugstore is no more. But Murray's Fly Shop is still going strong.

Shock on the South Fork: Rainbow eradication stirs controversy

>>>As anglers take to the water this year, they will again share the South Fork of the Snake River with Idaho Department of Fish and Game crews electroshocking fish in an effort to boost native cutthroat trout numbers.

Fish and Game began removing non-native rainbow and rainbow/cutthroat hybrids called "cutbows" in the spring of 2018 as part of a new management strategy based, in part, on 2017 angler surveys. According to Fish and Game Regional Fisheries Biologist Patrick Kennedy, the state surveys anglers every five years to determine what management strategies the public wants to see. And protecting native cutthroat topped the list.

In the early 2000s the department documented declining cutthroat numbers, while rainbow and cutbow populations showed steady growth. The agency changed rules on the South Fork to try to motivate anglers to harvest the non-native species, opening the river to a year-round season and offering anglers no limit on the non-natives.

>>>"These aggressive shocking tactics are a result of the widespread belief that efforts to date have not been successful enough, and the battle to protect native cutthroat is being lost. It's a desperate attempt by biologists and IDFG to stop a non-native species from stealing the soul of our mighty South Fork."
