This note is motivated by the article by F. Lutscher, E. Pachepsky, and M. Lewis 2005, The Effect of Dispersal Patterns on Stream Populations SIAM Rev. Vol. 47 No. 4 pp. 749-772 on the drift paradox. We consider the case of a regime switching probabilistic model for a population of organisms living in a one dimensional environment with drift towards an absorbing boundary of the type introduced by Lutscher et al. 2005. In particular, the two regimes consist of birth-death style demographics governing the evolution of the immobile regime, and some form of advection-dispersion governing the evolution of the mobile regime, together with a regime-switching mechanism linking the two. In the present note it is shown for the regime-switching model, and in contrast to the results in the afore cited work, for any finite advection speed, no matter how large, there is a finite critical length of the domain above which the population can persist.
