We asked you to vote for your favorite “Angler’s Choice” river among American Rivers’ Ten Most Endangered Rivers in America. The votes are in, and the winner is The Colorado River. A lifeline in the desert, The Colorado’s water sustains tens of millions of people and endangered fish and wildlife in seven states. However, demand on the river’s water now exceeds its supply, leaving the river so over-tapped that it no longer flows to the sea.
Voters were automatically entered to win a Helios 2 Outfit of his or her choice, and we’re thrilled to announce the winner is Patricia S. of Louisville, MS. Patricia recently learned to fly fish while on vacation, and can’t wait to be able to fish in her own backyard. That, of course, is what this is all about – protecting and restoring all our nation’s rivers and streams so they can continue to be a source of fun and recreation as well as sustenance for generations to come.
