I am still curious why it hasen't been mentioned that the most logical explanation is to get the shipping countries make a massive reef across the wash out. It won't change unless they fix it.

I still wonder what all of these new measures would do to salinity further up "stream" like moss, prien etc all the way up to "saltwater barrier". If all of the new measures block saltwater from spreading out and dissipating over West cove and also the East side, would the saltwater just funnel up north? I guess the locks at the south end of the ship channel would help?? Either way, still encouraging to see people giving a sh*t and trying to make the estuary better.

Default serious question

I understand that limiting saltwater intrusion will help preserve marshes, but (this may be a stupid question) if they built those rock walls and all along the ship channel, wouldn't the lake itself be fresher and isnt that a bad thing for trout specifically?
I mean i know i hate seeing 5ppt when i check USGS water conditions.
Is this different?
Thanks.

Which is more important, land loss mitigation or catching trout? But anyways, those cuts through the rocks will provide enough salt water to keep the trout happy. IMO

There is so much water that pushes in on an incoming tide through the old river it will supply plenty of saltwater. Also, some will come through the cuts. We should be good. But what do I know... lol

Maybe our grand children can catch bass. A 70 yo friend says when his Dad came to SW Louisiana that he caught bass in Black Lake. There are plans to put in rock barriers with boat cuts in Kelso Bayou and in the Salt Ditch off of the ICW and turn all of that marsh fresh. These would be rock barriers across the openings with a lower barrier 75'-100' wide in the middle to allow boats and barges into Black Lake. This would keep most of the heavier salt water from coming in on tide changes. If they get in early and stock Florida bass in Black Lake it could be a great fishery.

The old river may be rocked but the boat passage will have to handle one hell of a large crew boat. That area is home to many of them. It will still fog ungodly amounts of saltwater into the lake.

Would probably put the barrier where the butterfly pontoons are on the lake side of the old river. Not the channel end of the old river.

My dad is 74 and he remembers Cypress trees in Turners when he was a boy.

How the southern end of the estuary used to look like except it was natural land and bigger cuts at nine mile and washout.

Also can say wading past couple wkds we are feeling alot of shell and reef already coming back and the fish are getting on top of it. Very good sign, the bottom is getting a contour back, not just flat and barren.

Will say I hope this helps these big influxes of salt & fresh. Seems to go from one extreme to the next, when it was stable Feb-March fishing was awesome.

Thanks for posting this W haven't seen these plans... hope they are closing cut on north end of Yo's Cove- looks like it
