Yeah, this is like something Rove would cook up. Some of it is nominally true, other parts are outright misinformation. Salmon and steelhead don't "return to the delta to spawn" they pass through the nearby river systems and parts of the delta on their way to streams far up river. There were way more salmon when there were way more stripers, back before the California water project pumps started up. But, if nothing else, this will give the DFG a good excuse to continue sitting on their hands concerning striper management, they don't seem to want to do much anyway.
