Late spring heralds the start of open water fishing season. In much of the country, even the most stubborn winter ice has long since receded. Cold water species like trout rise to the surface to feed on the insects that swarm in thick clouds. Warm water species like bass lurk in the weeds at the pond’s edge.

Hearing the call, anglers begin to arrive at streams, rivers, and ponds to experience that sublime moment when they hook a big fish and witness its grace as it fights on the line.

For the casual angler, it’s easy to take for granted the abundance of fish this time of year. However, many species, especially native fish, can use their help.

“There are so many issues affecting the health of fish populations – barriers caused by dams and roads that cross streams fragment fish habitat. Water is diverted out of streams for other uses.” said Tina Hopkins, the regional fisheries program manager for the Forest Service’s Intermountain Region. “But perhaps the biggest threat across the country is aquatic invasive species.”

In some places, plants like milfoil and bivalves like zebra mussels are altering habitat in drastic ways and making it impossible for native species to thrive. In other waters, invasive fish – like northern pike and walleye – are outside of their native range and prey on or compete with native species.

Aquatic invasives specifies do cause problems. But so, too, do well-meaning or ill-intentioned human who introduce a destructive species into a sensitive ecosystem. In fact, people are most often the reason why invasive aquatic species are present in the first place.

“Sometimes it’s the kid with the home aquarium full of goldfish who doesn’t have the heart to dispatch them and instead lets them loose in a nearby pond,” said James Capurso, regional fisheries biologist for the Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Region. “People do not realize or do not consider the effect of a seemingly small act like releasing fish in a local pond. Either way, the consequences for the native fish population can be severe.” 

The Forest Service, state fish and game agencies, universities, and other partners are working together to protect waters from the introduction of invasive species and, when possible, control the invasive species already there.

For example, the Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Regional Dive Team deploys to control the Eurasian milfoil in otherwise pristine lakes, such as Odell Lake in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon. Water milfoil is a tough, aggressive plant that grows to the point that it crowds out native plants and can become so thick that ordinary activities like boating, fishing and swimming is difficult.

“We have developed an invasive species monitoring and rapid response program here in the Pacific Northwest Region that uses crews and DNA samples to detect invasive species in waters on national forests throughout the region,” said Capurso “Our goal is to detect new populations before they become well established so we can inform our rapid response.”

When it comes to invasive fish, bivalves, and invertebrates, managers have few options once a species becomes established. Reclamation, a process for culling all fish in a pond or watershed and reintroducing native species, is an intense intervention and not viable everywhere.

“In most cases, it’s nearly impossible to remove invasive fish species from the ecosystem once they are established,” said James Pellerin, regional fisheries biologist with Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

Preventing the introduction of invasive species is key to the future of native fish. Whether wading into the Deschutes River in Oregon or floating a canoe on Crocker Pond in Maine, anglers and recreators play an important role.

Fisheries biologists from around the country have recommended a few ways that anglers, boaters and recreators can do their part to ensure healthy fish stocks for seasons to come. Here is their advice to recreators, in their words:

Consult your lawbook, know the rules, and please don’t move fish around,”

- James Pellerin, Regional Fisheries Biologist, Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, Maine

It is extremely important that anglers clean their boats, trailers, waters, and gear when they are done fishing for the day, preferably pressure washing with hot water, to keep from spreading invasive plant species. Washing equipment should be part of anglers’ routine.”

- James Capurso, Regional Fisheries Biologist, Forest Service Pacific Northwest Region, Oregon

Every drainage is going to be different, so anglers should be informed about where they are fishing,” said Patrick Barry, “The headwaters of the Yellowstone River, for example, is the spawning grounds for Yellowstone cutthroat trout. Anglers can help here by returning all the female – and any Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout – to the river unharmed in the hopes that they may go on to spawn and perpetuate this important native fishery for future generations.”

- Patrick Berry, Fisheries Biologist, Bridger Teton National Forest, Wyoming

Active and informed citizen scientists are a huge help. If people see something unusual or concerning, they should reach out to their state fish and wildlife agency and let them know. If it’s in a body of water on a national forest or grassland, they can contact their local Forest Service district office.”

- Tina Hopkins, Fisheries Program Manager, Forest Service Intermountain Region, Utah

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has added two fugitives to the Texas Ten Most Wanted Sex Offenders list. Michael Deray Johnson, of Paris, and Christopher James Brett Clover, of Wichita Falls, are being sought. Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $3,000 for each fugitive for information leading to their arrests. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

Michael Deray Johnson

Christopher James Brett Clover

 

Michael Deray Johnson, 28, is a high-risk sex offender. He has been wanted since October 2018, when the Lamar County Sheriff’s Office issued warrants for his arrest for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements. In September 2020, warrants were also issued for an accident involving serious bodily injury and evading arrest/detention with a vehicle.

In 2010, Johnson was convicted of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old male. He was sentenced to two years in a Texas correctional facility. In 2014, Johnson was convicted of failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements and sentenced to a year in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) prison.

Johnson is 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighs about 175 pounds. He has tattoos on his right hand, left wrist and both arms. Johnson also has a scar on his right shoulder. In addition to Paris, he also has ties to Tyler. For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, view Johnson’s wanted bulletin.

Christopher James Brett Clover, 39, has been wanted since March 2020, when the Wichita County Sheriff’s Office issued multiple warrants for Clover’s arrest for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements and failure to register as a sex offender. Clover has also been wanted in Illinois since November 2020 for failure to register as a sex offender.

In 2006, Clover was convicted of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Illinois after an incident with a 16-year-old girl. He was sentenced to three years’ probation. While living in Illinois, Clover was convicted of multiple violations of sex offender registration. He was also convicted of two counts of unlawful restraint. In February 2017, Clover was released from an Illinois prison and moved to Wichita Falls.

Clover is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs about 205 pounds. He has tattoos on both of his upper arms. In addition to Wichita Falls, he also has ties to Wilbarger County, including the city of Vernon. He’s known to have fraudulent identifications, and may use the name “Charlie Flynn.” For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, view his wanted bulletin.

Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division, offers cash rewards to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of Texas’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives or Sex Offenders. So far in 2022, DPS and other agencies have arrested eight Texas Ten Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders, including three gang members and four sex offenders. In addition, $13,500 in rewards has been paid for tips that yielded arrests.

To be eligible for cash rewards, tipsters MUST provide information to authorities using one of the following three methods:

Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).

Submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about then clicking on the link under their picture.

Submit a Facebook tip by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section).

All tips are anonymous — regardless of how they are submitted — and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.

DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives for the Texas Ten Most Wanted Fugitive and Sex Offender Lists. You can find the current lists — with photos — on the DPS website.

Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
