Nice!
Do you keep any to eat? Or release them all? Wondering which ones are the best to keep, Im thinking you would want to release the big ones and keep some average size fish to help the river?

Sounds yummy, but what provoked the change of heart?

The last 8 years I have averaged 150 outings a season and and I have averaged 20 trout an outing. I decided to eat/keep any trout that was bleeding more than a little no matter the site of the blood.

I don't like the trend in the Midwest of strict catch and release. There are even anglers that will brow beat you and threaten you on the internet for keeping trout.

Trout fishing is a blood spot and not golf. Decided to revert back to my older days. Not way back when I kept 300 a year like back 20 years ago. Just a happy medium. Gonna keep 60-100 a year from now on.

Dan
if i make an effort to keep fish in an outing. the 15-16 inchers are the best. Not too big and obvious large egg bearers and not tiny and full of bones.

I'm strictly a catch and release trout flyfisherman, but that's because I don't care to eat trout. If someone likes them and the stream can support it, by all means eat up. I imagine if trout tasted like perch to me then I'd be returning a whole lot less.. :lol:
