Well, this is an interesting debate (pretty one sided now). I think both sides of the argument have valid arguments.
I am from the Milwaukee area, but frequent the driftless area in the spring and summer. Yes, many of these creeks are loaded with fish. The DNR and landowners have done an excellent job making this area of the state one of the greatest fisheries in the midwest. I usually cpr all the trout I catch in this area, but maybe once a year will keep one or two. I don't think there is anything wrong with a keeping a few fish a year. On the otherhand keeping your limit everytime you go out is just downright uneccesary, especially if you are going out at least weekly. Imagine if everyone did that on a sensitive stream? It would make a dent. A lot of people have mentioned that its there legal right to keep their limit. That is correct, but I know way too many people that just keep there limit to say they caught there limit, and 100% of those people don't NEED to rely on eating trout evey week. Keep in mind a lot of the laws and limits the WDNR has in place are strongly influenced by the public. If people want to keep fish then the laws will reflect on that. Doesn't mean its ethical.
Fortunately, the driftless area is not as heavily pressured as it could be and I think many people I run into have a cpr mentality or keep only a couple fish a year. Lets keep this resource as good as its been over the years.
I don't think Thermo was neccisarily bashing just sharing his opinion and he did apologize so I don't know what the huge fuss is about.
I'll be out there this weekend, tight lines everybody!
