Upper Truckee river that flows into Lake Tahoe, and Sagehen creek. Wild & Scenic does not always mean good health for the rivers. The Middle Fork Feather was the first wild and scenic river yet has 7 golf courses in a 10 mile radius that feeds the MFFR.
butter (Jon)----You are correct on Sagehen Creek. The hoped for designation was submitted by Senator Boxer in the early '90's (?). Yes, I am aware of the golf courses in the Greyeagle (?)area. Nevertheless, there has to be some benefits relative restricting housing construction/development along riparian areas. Please don't ask me specifics, then I'll have to research it.I don't beleive the Upper Truckee river in south Lake Tahoe area ia considered part of the Truckee River Basin.
