Default Re: Eat that fish, or release it?

When I fish I'm selective in my harvest... Some streams I don't have a problem taking a limit from multiple times a year... other areas I'll keep a couple fish the whole year... One thing people should realize from a conservation point is that it is rarely an angler that is lowering the population of a trout stream... more often than not it's environmental reasons that cause a decline in trout population.... Trout lay 1000s of eggs and plenty of those eggs are fertilized every spawn... A healthy trout stream can support fishing for the table with no issues... Now don't confuse this with commercial fishing... I'm talking about anglers taking their daily limit... Not a net taking 100s if not 1000s of pounds
