"An Irrigation Ditch Runs Through It"

Posted on July 26 2006

Huey Lewis and other landowners want the Mitchell Slough near Victor, Montana, to be a ditch, not a stream. This despite the fact that it was once part of the nearby Bitterroot River and is apparently fed by underground springs. “The long-running controversy began in 1991, when two brothers, Randy and Robert Rose, who some view as the Rosa Parks of the fly-fishing set, defied the landowners’ restrictions and went fishing on the slough. They were arrested for trespassing but were found not guilty by a jury in the court of Justice of the Peace Ed Sperry.” Jim Robbins in The New York Times.
