Because of a law suit filed, to protect a frog specie.

All due, apparently, because of an environmental issue of the survival of a specie of frog. Which has nothing to do, I assume, with irrigation. At least that's what I got from the video.

Maybe they shou;ld take out the dam and let it be a public water way again. After all it is public water and irragator's should have no special right's. Haystack. Prineville Res and Ochoco Res same thing. The state damed up public water to make it avaliable to a special interest group and that group is first served!Bill said:I guess I am missing something. Wickiup is and was designed for irrigation purposes. It was not made with recreation as its main purpose. Maybe with enough issues,they will just stop stocking it. A great fishery but it’s not designed for sportsman its for irrigation
