They've discovered by removing all the water, the mussels will die. They're starting upstream at Powell and will be working their way to Mead, Mohave, then Havasu, the Parker Strip, finally the lower river. ;)

I was there on Wednesday. Decided to drop my phone on dock and it's now 90 feet below, SMH! Anyway, telling the golf cart guy about it and he says they found a wallet on shore by Wahweap Marina now that water is down so low. He said the cc expiration was 1979. :oops:

I then went to Verizon in Page and replaced my phone. The woman at the counter chuckled at my story and says it happens more than you'd think. I asked how often and she said I was the 9th phone. I reply, 9th this month? She says, no, 9th since Monday! It was Wednesday.

Once found an entire Volvo DUO prop lower unit wedged into a rock just outside Gunsight o_O
I can see the whole drive coming off after striking something but the lower unit???? When I took care of some offshore racy type boats we had a twin install come back with just the Port side working. The starboard struck something and ripped the whole outdrive off the back of the boat. The starboard was hanging by the shift cable ready to go to Davey's locker until they lashed it to the stern and came in on one drive with the bilge pumps barely able to keep up. Volvo Penta 290 drives.

For those in the Powell know -- does Powell have the Asiatic (Golden) Clams like Havasu has and had long before the Quagga invasion ? Apparently they, despite a bad reputation for causing bio-fouling at power stations, weren't deemed a threat ??
