    Default Brown Trout Bounty Lees Ferry

    Brown trout in the colorado river at lees ferry will soon have a reward on their heads. Anglers will get paid to catch and kill them out of the river. Fishing them out instead of mechanical removal is the preferred method of local tribal beliefs.

    The Dam is invasive as well. Using National Park service rational, it should be removed as well.

    Lets see , the brown was introduced almost 100 years ago and that chub is still around . Hmm , sounds really bad for a fish no one has a use for . I have never seen one myself so I wont miss it however I will miss the Brown trout once it is gone . Personally I will release every BT I catch there as well as any other trout . Does the chub bite on flys ? Is it big enough to eat ? Whats it taste like ? Hmmm. lol

    That's right ron. I suspect most of us will c&r any brown like any other trout. However I would like to know more about the cultural side of this and would not want to go against any blessings that were performed for this project to protect the chub. As I read it increased angling opportunities like guided tournaments will take its toll. Not us. Could be 40-50 boats on the water.

    I suspect the bounty will have about as much success as the effort to remove rainbows from the South Fork of the Snake River.
