The idea that Whirling Disease is present and active in the waters we fish has fallen from the minds of many fishermen and Women. We at PPCTU have decided to make a major push to bring back to the consciousness of any who will listen that : Whirling Disease is alive and well.
An example of people having forgotten: The Dream Stream. Every single rainbow trout caught in the section of the South Platte known as the “Dream Stream” began its life in a hatchery. The Dream Stream is so HOT with Whirling Disease spores that not a single Rainbow that hatches from those eggs layed each Spring makes it to maturity. CPW has published a fact sheet, provided here for your additional information.
