Please Pass The Poultry Litter Regulation

I appreciate all of your efforts and support the regulations regarding the poultry issues on the Shenandoah river.  I have been fishing the south fork for over twenty years and have seen the decline of fish count as well as size of the fish being caught. I remember days when it was normal to catch between 150 – 200 fish a day and always catch a couple of “hogs.” We fished the doah last year and while we did catch ~50 fish only one exceed 10” and it was covered in some type of lesions and looked very sickly.  I hope that these regs, will begin to help restore the health of this vital watershed.
Thanks for your efforts
