Re: Photo's/Pictures

Ok just photo the fish you plan to keep. Many of our streams are fine with some harvest.

Handle them carefully, and keep them wet. A quick picture should be ok.

You live local to the streams, so I say go for it. I’m up here in the Cities, and I’m not sure it’s a good idea for us to travel longer distances to small towns to go fishing.

Fishing Saturday 5/5

I got out on a popular stream south of 90. Lots of people were out in the morning, but thinned out by noon. The water was a little dirty but very fishable.
