Alt browns fight about as well as the wet rag they're fond of associating with. Catch and release is strongly recommended. Consumption is not advised.

Speaking of which- the article failed to mention any consumption or health advisories associated with using that section of river for the near-term (above what may already be in place). Not that I think many folks are angling right now- but you never know.

I’m guessing Bug food would be grossly (no pun intended) outweighed by algae food in the pro/con department. Fish won’t be eating if they can’t breath.
Speaking of bugs...to be a fly on the wall of the backhoe cab during the discussion, and subsequent agreement, in the 1970s to encase the storm water and sewage line junction in a tomb of concrete.
