RE:Brats on the Sky

Both fish were released to muddy the gene pool. I discussed this with the guy I was fishing with as he questioned the wisdom of regulations that allowed a short native kill fishery but required C&R of hatchery fish after March 1st. I agree that the native kill should be stopped and stopped now but support the C&R season. If not for this, every plugpuller around would be hitting the river through the end of April trying for a keeper. At least this way, the crowds are kept down somewhat and the meat hunters are gearing up for the lowland lake opener.
