It's not an addiction because I don't want to quit
another big ass fish! well done. I catch plenty in the Cedar, but nothing that size this year.
Thnks....It took 2 full summers of fishing and catching countless baby fish before I finally caught a decent sized fish.... There are some nice fish in there, it just takes hours of fishing to find them...

Fished the Cedar tonight. Caught 6 bows and 4 cutties on dries in about 3 hours. Lotta topwater action (mainly little guys).
Thats all I've been seeing lately too. I got a couple big ones on streamers a few weeks ago and everytime I've gone out swinging streamers or big stonefly nymphs its been nada. Switch to dries and it's little guys for days.

same. I think you just have to fine the right hole... and I haven't found it yet.

I wonder just how many people fish the Cedar in a season. With all the people that disregard the Regs. Just what do the fish see in front of them.

from what I've heard, there's plenty of people keeping and killing fish on the Cedar. its easy to access and easy to hide yourself.

I agree... I think there are plenty of people who knowingly take fish out....on the other hand, I sometimes run into people who didn’t know any different... i find most people receptive to a friendly conversation.... river etiquette, is a completely different story...

I found one spot where I caught two larger sized trout but decided to explore the river a bit more this year and have gone super long stretches with nothing. Also have lost a ton of gear this year snagging up on underwater logs/branches etc ... In the end I get to explore a pretty cool river in my backyard looking for a few fish hiding here and there.

When most people buy their licenses, the copy of the regs are available. Why don't these people pick up a copy of the regs and then read them. The regs on the Cedar don't change that much from year to year. Only the opening and closing dates are somewhat different. I just can't believe that people are that dumb.

There are two groups of folks: naive people and dumb people. Unfortunately, they're both everywhere!
Actually there are 3 groups: poachers are the 3rd. Solution: forfeiture of this years license, all the gear and banned for the next year. NO exceptions, no matter which group you are in. Sounds harsh? So is depleting any resource that belongs to everyone. If you can't read, don't care or are just an F ing poacher, this way you'll learn.
