Follow Up On Chocolate River

I fished the Norfork on thursday and it was gin clear and loaded with fish. I called my friend Leon Alexander of Norfork, Arkansas. He was the guy who stayed on top of this crisis. He put together the petition that got something done. He said that he visited the site, Norfork Overlook Estates and observed that the developer, Mr Doyle of Yelleville Arkansas had finally gotten the message. He observed that a lot of work had been done. Bales of hay were put up and a settling pond was under construction. There was a stockpile of materials to seed the site and it appeared that there was a serious effort to fix the problem. Maybe something we did got the word out and applied a bit of pressure. Good job Leon!

As posted on another forum by a Trout Unlimited official.

"the arkansas chapter of trout unlimited is preparing to send the required 60 day notice of intent to file suit in federal court on this developer. those of you who saw the river saturday, after the heavy rain know that corrective action has not fixed the problem. everyone needs to know that T-U is on this and will stay on this"

Good news....Dano

Wow! I had not heard this. I will give Leon Alexander a heads up. The White River and Crooked Creek were also chocolate like on saturday. I had a guide trip that day and the rain was unrelenting. We got four and a half inches in Cotter. Thanks for the update Dano.
