Well, it's more mistake correction than anything.


More like KILLING EM by the HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS and then allowing their carcass's to lay out and rot in the sun.

Like I posted, so Intelligently human.

When you catch trout how many do you guys usually release and how many do you usually take home to eat?

Cool!
I had never even heard of the Paiute, Rick. Had to Google it up. A rare sort of Cutthroat? Beautiful fish.
Didn't realize you were into fishing, also??

Catch and Release for me, Vitaliy. Ever since my dad tried to feed me under-cooked rainbow caught at Specimen Creek(I think that was the name of the place?) when I was a 5 year old I can't stand the taste of fish of any kind. :cry:

Still like to catch 'em though.

You sound like my dad! When I was little I spent hours, days, either wading in Steelhead streams, freezing my ass off, or sitting around while my dad and grandpa tied flies.

Good memories.

If I aint climbing, I'm working the local Wild Trout.

All no more than a 1/2 hours drive from my drive-way.


Can't beat it.

When I was 8-12 years old every summer I would be out in my great grandmother's house in a wild village. I would go fishing 4-7 days a week every week through the summer. Remember catching a carp was one of my best days ever. Mostly went for small mouth bass, catfish, and other fish for whose names I do not know English translation. It was great. Even learned to catch crawfish from their holes under water, although could do that only about once in 4 days to let the wounds from the previous day heal lol.

C & R all the time here.... regardless.


Really? You never eat the regular trout too?

For me, it depends on the fish, the system I'm fishing and just what the hell I'm doing there. Generally, I'm a C&R fisherman, but hatchery fish are meant for the freezer and are not for spawning with wild fish stocks. On many streams up here, ODFW will trap those anadromous species of hatchery origin which escape both the commercial and sport catch. Generally, the fish are killed and returned to the river or stream as a means of returning nutrients within the system.

So, I tend to keep a fair amount of hatchery Chinook, Coho and Steelhead. Native fish are always returned whether allowable to keep or not. Same for trout, stream or lake. But when in the BC for a good stretch, I tend to depend on a fish or two to cover a couple/few meals depending on how long I'm in. Most of our "high" lakes are stocked by air every couple of years, winter kill amongst them being relatively high. If the funded resource is available, I'd rather put it to use.

C&R is standard for me too. Of course, there was that one trip when I got separated fom my father. He had all the meals and I had the cooking supplies. We both had to rely on eating trout 2 meals a day for 3 days while we were apart. Thankfully, we each had our own snacks - and our fishing gear. Thought for sure my dad had fallen somewhere and gotten himself killed as we were hiking off-trail with heavy packs. (We were going up and over a small ridge and I decided to run up to the peak while my father said he would meet me at the lake on the other side...) Spent a day looking for his corpse before I decided I'd better get help. I was quite relieved to find him back at the TH... Didn't eat fish for a while after that trip.

I didn't know you guys have Largemouth Bass in California. I have never caught one, but they look like a blast to fish for.
