I see this primarily as an awareness/ education issue.
Most likely, the young men who caught the trout were not homeless and
reduced to fishing from Sausal Creek to feed themselves.
More likely, they were simply ignorant- of the law, and of the value and
uniqueness of these fish in our creek.
It seems to me that our FOSC outreach efforts- in particular to those who
may have come here from other places- is one of the most important
functions of our organization.
I believe that when people are taught even a basic sense of environmental
awareness and stewardship, they will tend to behave more appropriately in
