Re "Salty risks for Delta's flow" (Page A1, June 9): The fish are almost gone in the Delta and Sacramento River. I disagree with Gov. Jerry Brown and Sen. Dianne Feinstein in building two tunnels to divert more water from the Sacramento River at the expense of the environment, farms and towns' water supplies in the North to satisfy Southern California's thirst for water. This water needs to remain in Northern California to support this area's way of life.
Over the past years I've seen a disappearance of fish beginning in the Delta and continuing upstream to the confluence of the Sacramento and Feather Rivers. This has been confirmed not only by the using of my sonar locator, but also by many other fishermen I have spoken with who are also using such devices.
The state Department of Fish and Wildlife and water agencies know why. Water tunnels are not the answer. There's a better way.
