AIS Hysteria
While the following article is a personal opinion story, globally, trillions of dollars have been spent on invasive species each year. Is there a little bit of invasive species hysteria?

It seems the hot topic in the last few months has been the invasion of non-native species of aquatic plants and fish into Lake Champlain. To quote the Lake Champlain Basin Program Guide for Aquatic Invasive Species: “The Lake Champlain Basin is home to a number of invasive species that cause economic and ecological harm to our ecosystem.”

Eurasian Watermilfoil is the most commonly named invasive plant species in Lake Champlain. I am sure milfoil causes problems with the million dollar waterfront houses’ water intake systems or the use of Jet Skis in the shallow flats from the heavy growth. But then again it seems from my years of fishing that where the milfoil grows so does the best fishing occur. Ask any big time pro and he will always say,”find the milfoil, find the bass.”

Boat Ban to Stop the Spread of Hydrilla - A surface water use restriction which bans the use of boats in Davis Stream is effective immediately and will run through ice formation. Next spring, the departments will jointly consider whether to reissue the restriction. Under the order, no watercraft may enter or travel this reach of Davis Stream except in emergency situations or when the environmental department ad endorsed volunteers are doing survey or removal work related to the hydrilla infestation.
