Pawnee Reservoir Low-Dose Rotenone Treatment Re-visited

Some of you may remember that fisheries managers for the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission tried an experimental fisheries management technique at Pawnee Reservoir a year ago last fall, Pawnee Renovation.  Unlike typical rotenone renovations where all fish are removed from a body of water, the effort at Pawnee was one where we hoped that a relatively low dose of rotenone would selectively eliminate gizzard shad and white perch. Let me share some more of what we know about that fisheries …

Happy Mother’s Day 2015

Sunday is Mother’s Day.  What mother does not like baby ducks? Oh, my grandmothers liked baby ducks as much as the next mother, but my grandmother’s also were pike fisherwomen.  They liked catching big, bad, baby duck-eating pike! Grandma Roth even got a Master Angler Award for that fish.  I have the award here on the book shelf in my office. Mom got in on the pike-catching too.  I am guessing this pike ate little baby ducks. I have posted …

Come on, Disconnect for a Day!

What would it be like to go without ultra-modern technology? What if you had to give up your mobile communicating device (cell phone), iPad, iPod, laptop computer, digital cable television, satellite car radio, etc. for 24 hours. That would mean no texting, no Tweeting, no Facebook, no Snapchat, no Facetime, no IM-ing, none of that stuff! Could you do it?  Is it even remotely possible? I know, I know. Call me what you want. I’m an old fart, an “old schooler,” a soon-to-be grandpa. But, come on, face …

Earth Day? 2015

I have a couple of calendars in my office that have something about “Earth Day” scribbled on the square dated April 22, 2015.  I have taken a cynical view of “Earth Day” in the past, have reflected that in my blog, and do not feel any differently today.  Let me tell you why. . . . Earlier this week I stopped at a stop-light and watched the pig in the car in front of me squash out his cigarette and …
