    I am certainly ready for a new season of bassin’ and hope you are too. I’ve been excited to kick off the year with coverage of the International Sports Shows in Sacramento and Scottsdale as well as the Fred Hall show. Stay tuned for upcoming tank seminars on WesternBassTV, if you missed the shows. This year, WesternBass was excited to bring site users video clips from our western anglers at the Bassmaster Classic. I will be watching and cheering them on throughout the year. I would like to congratulate Lowrance pro Edwin Evers for his outstanding win at Grand Lake for the Classic championship – 29 pounds! Wow! I would to like remind anglers that WesternBass offers many features on the site to make tournament planning easy. Under the Interactive tab, we have the Tournament Calendar and Special Events with Digital Guides for all of the Wild West Bass Trail events. Under the Delta tab, you will find moon phases, weather, water temps and tide charts to help plan a fun and productive day on the tidal water. Lastly, I want to thank all of you for your support of the site and the magazine. It is because of you and our sponsors that WesternBass is the place where fishermen talk. Wayne

  • Event Alert: Stop the Tunnels in Livermore, this Wednesday!

    Event Alert: Stop the Tunnels in Livermore, this Wednesday!

    Dear Friends of Restore the Delta,The Zone 7 Water Agency is scheduled to vote to support the Delta tunnels project at a public meeting this Wednesday.  The vote centers around continued financial support. They need to hear from people who oppose the Delta Tunnels project! It is important for urban ratepayers and all of California to oppose this project.Zone 7 sells treated water primarily to four retail water agencies – the California Water Service Company, the cities of Livermore and Pleasanton, and the Dublin San Ramon Services District. Not only will the project result in higher water rates for residents being served by these water districts, but as a State Water Project contractor it is likely that they will also use parcel/property taxes to pay for the project, even though you will not receive any additional water. In addition, Zone 7 Water Agency's calculations are based on a 40% contribution from the Westlands Water District to the project's total costs. However, Westlands officials have recently stated in public meetings and to the press that they are not moving forward with any further financial contributions. In addition, they are in hot water with the SEC for "Enron" style accounting. That means that smaller water agencies, like Zone 7, will have to come up with the additional funding.What: Zone 7 Water Agency Board Meeting, Citizens Forum (will occur at the beginning of the meeting)Date: Wednesday, March 16, 2016Location: 100 N. Canyons Parkway, LivermoreTime: 7:00 pmAnd/or email comments to: BoardofDirectors@zone7water.comHere is a statement for you to use as a template, or to send to them as an email. Thank you, Barbara, Restore the Delta******************************************************************************Dear Zone 7 Water Agency Board Members,Instead of spending more money on planning and supporting the Delta tunnels, which will not meet standards under the Clean Water Act or the Endangered Species Act for protection of the Delta, it would be much more cost-effective for Zone 7 Water Agency to continue to pursue the good conservation measures that are currently at work, and to draw available water from the Delta during wet periods. As a water rate payer and property tax payer, I do not want to pay money for a project that will not create additional water supply.  I do not want to pay money for a project so that Zone 7 Water Agency moves into the water resale business. In addition, seeing that Westlands Water District officials are facing an SEC fine for "Enron" style accounting and are saying in public meetings and to the press that they are not contributing their 40% share to the total cost of the project, Zone 7 will be on the hook for significantly more money as the years go by.  And for what?  To help State Water Project contractors in the Southern part of the state?As part of the Bay-Delta region, it makes more sense for Zone 7 Water Agency to align itself with other Bay-Delta communities to protect the long term health of the SF Bay-Delta estuary. The Department of Water Resources' own modeling and climate change modeling by independent scientists shows us that there is going to be less and less water available from the Delta watershed.  How can Zone 7 invest in what will ultimately become a stranded asset? Please VOTE NO against CA WaterFix/Delta Tunnels.
