The use of felt-soled waders or boots in Vermont waters is prohibited starting April 1, 2011. TERBURY, Vt - Anglers, hunters, trappers and others who wade in Vermont's streams and lakes will be helping to protect our natural resources by paying close attention to their foot gear.
Good added that, while research hasn't proven a connection between the presence of didymo and declines in trout numbers, taking steps to prevent the spread of the invasive didymo is important.
This is a story that is going to be repeated over and over during the next couple of years. Well, with the snowpack we have and all, nothing will be fishable til mid-June anyway, and by that time, it'll be warm enough that I won't care all that much every time I slip and fall in. I think this is a necessary step in the right direction, and hopefully this gets done nationwide in time to stop anything catastrophic from happening to an already fragile series of river systems. The only way to prevent cross contamination is to prevent ANYTHING from going into the water.
I feel a lot safer wearing felts too, but I'm not going to be the one responsible for spreading the problem. If anyone wants to do some reading on the science of the felt sole debate, here are some links.
At this point there is no such thing as a budget wading boot with rubber soles that doesn't suck.
Most of you are unaware that in the passed Vermont legislation, there is an exemption for state and federal employees. This allows Vermont fisheries as well as other personnel to use felt soled waders and boots. So the ultimate irony is that a Vermont warden can give you a citation for wearing felt boots while wearing felt boots himself. When I worked for a resource agency I was careful to choose my words also because if I didn't, my supervisor would edit them out! Too bad we cannot ask the authors, "Will your recommendations prevent the spread of Didymo, yes or no?" There were times in my job when, if asked such a question, I would have come face to face with choosing complete honesty or losing my job! In Montana, the ban was voted down based on State Fishery workers indicating that they would not abandon felt for safety (and perhaps liability?) reasons. You are absolutely correct Silver, but that is a political issue, while the issue that Mikel needs to keep in mind is the value of banning felt soled boots for use by fishermen while allowing state fishery workers to continue to use them.
As usual, he chooses to disengage when he can't come up with logical arguments to support his side of an issue.
It is not only dydimo and felt soled boots that is an example of how experts that should know better say one thing but do another on the issue invasive species.
Another example is Whirling Disease (WD) and the Colorado Division of Wildlife's (CDW) trout hatcheries.
Last fall, the Division of Wildlife released new research suggesting that the stocking of infected fish in WD+ reservoirs was increasing the level of infection in brown trout populations downstream (for highlights from the research, see the whirling disease page).
Nevertheless, when a state such as Colorado with its many miles of trout habitat acts in such a way, is there any wonder that I dig into the the actual bills that are passed to see if the rules apply equally to the state employees and the fishing public? Can we not agree that the fishing public and the state employees should be treated equally under the law?
I have not done my homework on WD, but from what I know, Colorado spent $11 million dollars (?) disinfecting their hatcheries but it didn't work! Obviously, the CDOW does not believe in wasting their resources on containment of invasives!
I don't look for Colorado to ban felt anytime soon as I have been told by one of their employees that there is no discussion of a ban as of yet. No one has mentioned the role of fish farms and private stocking on the spread of disease either which I find strange.


Our Department, on its own initiative, has established spread prevention and decontamination protocols for our own staff when they are engaged in different water-based activities; an example is attached which pre-dates the felt legislation.
Although the risk of transferring unwanted organisms is reduced when using non-felt alternatives, precautions should still be taken after fishing and especially when moving between waters. Check your boots and remove all mud and vegetation, as these could carry aquatic invasive species. Add a cup of dishwashing detergent or several capfuls of household bleach to a gallon of water and soak and scrub your boots with a stiff bristled brush for about a minute.
Please do you part to help stop the spread of didymo and other aquatic invasive species by properly disinfecting your boots and other fishing equipment before moving to another waterbody, watershed or upstream site. The use of felt-soled waders or boots in Vermont waters is prohibited starting April 1, 2011. The same precautions that can prevent the spread of didymo, can also prevent the spread of whirling disease, which can have devastating effects on rainbow trout populations.Didymo was first found in Vermont in the Connecticut River in 2007.
Little critters can hide inside a wading boot, reel, or other equipment just as well if not better than in the felt. It seems to me that if banning felt is important, Vermont fisheries workers, who are routinely in the waters and are more likely to be in different watersheds routinely, should be the first to transition to rubber soles. This is the kind of legislation that burdens the public, but exempts government which drives me nuts. However they still have a policy of stocking infected fish "only" into waters that already have WD. CTU believes this research offers further evidence that the stocking of infected fish (even in habitats that already have the WD parasite present) can harm the resource. Maryland, for example, has an aggressive testing policy and they did the right thing and closed the Bear Creek hatchery when WD was found. How can anyone, in this time in our history, say that a public employee carving out a privilege for himself over the public is acceptable?
Instead the Vermont exempts their own employees while mandating a change for the fishermen.
Instead of shutting the fish hatcheries down and cleaning them, the CDW continued to stock infected fish into its public waters, some of which were previously uninfected!
They had research which showed that parasite dose exposure in the environment increases infection rates and decreases survival. Trout from positive hatcheries will be stocked into waters where the parasite has been found to minimize the risk of contaminating other watersheds.
In some of these new environments, didymo has formed nuisance blooms and dense mats several inches thick that carpet stream bottoms."In some cases, didymo can change aquatic insect communities and native algae populations in streams," said Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department fisheries biologist Shawn Good.
Nuisance blooms have since occurred in the Mad, White, East Branch Passumpsic, and Gihon Rivers.
Of course their boots carrying nasties is only bad if they move to other waters without treating them. Only trout from negative testing hatcheries can be stocked into waters where the parasite has not been found. Whether one wishes to see mountain vistas, coastal plains or the Piney Woods, Texas outdoors offers something for everyone. Many state parks are located near the water so families are able to spend time fishing for one of the various species that inhabit our waterways.
I read the articles and I did not see anything conclusive that felt wading boots ARE the problem.
In order to promote camping for all ages, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is offering three separate outdoor events in May. Three of the statea€™s most beautiful parks will play host to the Texas Outdoor Family Adventure Series.


State parks, Palo Duro Canyon and Caprock Canyons, both in the Panhandle, and Martin Dies, Jr., in East Texas, offer opportunities for camping with some adventure. Dates for the 2011 series are May 14-15 for Palo Duro and Martin Dies and May 28-30 for Caprock.
Red canyon walls as high as 800 feet offer unbelievable formations and photographic opportunities unlike any other.
Boots and other equipment should be dried, preferably in the sun, or disinfected with dishwashing detergent or bleach solution.
Classes will be held on paddling along with a leisurely three hour trip on the Angelina River. Wildlife abounds around every bend in the river.The Caprock adventure is two nights of camping and is over the Memorial Day Weekend. This event will offer hiking the beautiful trails of the Caprock and lessons in geocaching. This is also home to the Texas State Bison herd started by the legendary rancher Charles Goodnight.Lindsey Davis, Texas Outdoor Family Program coordinator says that "These expanded programs are aimed at families who are looking for more adventurous camping experiences. We recognize that many families want to expand their outdoor recreation knowledge, but are uncomfortable going alone to a remote site with limited facilities.
The Texas Outdoor Family Adventure Camping Series allows the families to enjoy their time together in a safe environment with knowledgeable rangers to guide and assist at any time."Launched in 2008, the Series has taught more than 1,300 families, many from urban environments, how to safely enjoy the outdoors. The Series provides camping gear for up to six and includes individual campsites, restrooms with hot showers, ranger supported instruction and safety. To protect the environment campers are encouraged to leave no trace.Participants are required to bring their own sleeping bags, personal items and food.
