Default Re: Catch and Release HELP

Education is the key...On some of the streams as was said in earlier posts; they may intend it to be a Put and Take fishery due to water conditions. On the streams you mentioned with the Native Brookies, you need to educate yourself and others. I say educate yourself, much easier to convince folks of something they don't want to hear if you can give them facts and statistics, rather then emotion; I mean no offense on that statement. If there are no local chapters of TU or FFF, try and get a group of like minded people interested, and don't overlook your local Chamber of Commerce. If the fishing is good it brings tourist dollars to the area. Once you establish a local club, you can begin working on change through your local fisheries biologist; if a change in policy is warranted. Offer your services for any projects the local biologist may be working on, he will appreciate the help to his budget. Lastly, talking to people on the stream about C&R can go a long ways if you use the right approach.

Good Luck,

Dan
