Re: Eat that fish, or release it?
I've never been big on keeping fish. I've kept a couple for dinner on back country outings. When guiding on the local water we do nothing but catch and release. The Snake River fishing is a large part of the local economy here in Jackson Hole. There is no stocking done here either. It is a natural self sustaining population and needs to be treated with care. The majority of people here do not take fish. Those that do adhere to the slot limits.
That being said I do understand folks taking fish from stocked waters that will not sustain the fish over time. A lot of the streams I fished in PA were that way. In late summer they were too warm to support trout. The fish would die anyway.
