Angry poachers

Just a heads up for anyone fishing the Swift River in MA:

If you see people keeping more than their limit PLEASE take a licence plate number and call the toll-free poacher's hotline 800.632.8075

Unfortunately there is a group of poachers who are cleaning out the river on a weekly basis. I fished there friday and could see at least 50 fish in the area below the rt 9 bridge. Went back last night and the same section of river was DEAD EMPTY.

I am concerned that they will start depleting the wild brook and brown trout fishery as well. That would be a major loss considering the scarcity of such resources in MA.
