i meant from pass lake....
Okay, I thought you were just looking for larger rainbows. I guess I'll trip over a brown eventually.
No, didn't tape it, but I had one of those little measue nets. Though I don't give them to be the most accurate, about 23":thumb:
yeah ed we are hording the browns up here. ive got 6 lakes around here to choose from.
I'd never heard of the catch cards either but I looked for them Thursday afternoon and sure enough, they are there. Pencils too!
They have been there as far as I know since my first trip there in 1992.
Anyone have suggestions on lakes or are we just giving measurments on fish now?
the thought has crossed my mind that if there were at least one C&R/FFO trophy lake in each county on the Wet side, that tourist dollars would pour into this state.
There oughtta be a LAW.
I repeat my suggestion for Cassidy based on the following:
1. High nutrient level
2. Minimal shoreline development
3. Depth to 30', good for wintering over of fish but still plenty of shallows for fly fishing.
4. Doesn't appear to be a heavily fished lake once the post stock rush is over.
5. It does support a healthy bass population. I see no reason it wouldn't support a trout population if managed to do so.
6. Limited access from shore, less of a threat from poachers.
7. Small enough to be easily fished from a tube/pontoon or any other human powered craft.
8. It's 5 minutes from my house:rofl:
Ok, disregard item 8. As previously stated, we need more of these lakes and I will support the effort regardless of what body of water is picked.
Can you give us some more info on Moss Lake? On the map it looks pretty small but I like the idea that it also appears fairly isolated.
Doesn't cassedy get really warm? I do like the idea of it's loction though, though one with a little less population and houses around would be better, IMO.
Yea, good point Trent. The north half probably averages only 15' deep, so I bet it does get warmer than most of our lakes and too warm for a healthy trout population.
Ok, I retract my Cassidy suggestion. Anyone else have any ideas?
