    Fished Lake Rufus Woods Thursday. One triploid to hand on a black bugger. Saw another gentleman hook and land three while we were launching the boat. In the afternoon two others ttrowing rooster-tails landed their four fish limits just below us and pulled out. All football shaped triploids. They cleaned their fish and left the remains at the launch. The remains were full of fish pellets and huge quantities of fat. Those fish just are not "normal". What are we allowing our river to become? :hmmm:

    Those fish just hang below the pens and eat and eat and eat. Get yourself a pellet fly and hang on, or better yet, just avoid the zoo and seek normal fish in some other locale.
