Eating our annual shore lunch; a farmer pulled into the parking area where were eating to see how the fishing was and perhaps shoot the bull.

After some short banter; I offered him a bite to eat. He accepted my offer kindly and ate some fresh fried fish with us. After his tasty meal, he pointed us to a branch of stream that no one fishes, but is a DNR easment on his land. "heck the DNR pay for it to use it- you guys might as well fish it- Thanks for the fish it hit the spot."

It pays to feed the land owners!

CRA, Keeping trout within the limits is every angler's right. I was just voicing my own two cents and perhaps I should've added that to the end. I have no problem with people keeping wild trout; I just choose not to myself. Additionally, after eating two on opening day, I now remember why I stopped eating trout when I chased them in the Milwaukee area years ago - they are like the white meat on a chicken...a little on the dry side compared to crappie and bluegill. I'm a dark meat guy. So, that leaves extra trout for everybody else to hunt. I will still chase them because they are an incredible fish and some of the most beautiful things that swim, but I won't be eating them. Again, this is just my take and I don't wish to cast any negative light on anyone who is within the letter of the law. Eating fish that you catch is a great thing. We are actually spoiled as anglers because we get to eat fish far more fresh than anything in the market.

Or if you want to keep a few trout without taking down a significant number of the wild stock. I won't keep trout from waters that aren't stocked because I don't want to hurt a resource that is on the upswing, but maybe that's just me.

Goh... congratulations on your valliant decicion to not keep trout in a natural stocked stream. And though I recognize the important part natural trout play in the streams eco system; can disagre with you.

I keep the legal natural trout that I catch because I enjoy eating the meat. I however, will not take more than it is required for a day or two's worth of meals. I do not enjoy the taste of first year planters- therefore I release planters to come back to visit me in following year.

I feel that the trout I keep and eat potentially will fall prey to disease and predation- that by keeping them I am thinning out the school so that other fish don't have to compete for food or space. I recognize the daily bag limits (should I choose to follow them) amounts to 20 trout; therefore I do not limit out or even come close. Good management stems from good common sense!

Buzzie- who cares if LCH guides anymore or not? what does this have to do with this thread?

I have been following this thread for months now, and have to yet see anyone bash this book or it's author. I have seen people question the sources of the authors research; research methods; or logic that went into naming the streams mentioned.

What I did see is how this thread turned into a discussion of thoughts of the book to "should I reveal the streams I fish" ethics discussion. Long threads do tend to stray from the original topic- such is the case in any discussion.

If you are no longer a guiding why are you promoting yourself as one?

Guess I am out of the loop Bugs grew tired of all you self promotion and quit reading for a while. Then when I see you coming down on some ones book, like the resident authority you claim to be, I found it a bit irksome. Then read back a few titles and see that Spinner Harris became a Fly Fisherman after all the bashing you did years ago I am hardly able to contain a hypocritical smile. I see why you use to bash people all the time on the Fly Fishing page kind of like bullying without the beat down. Later Bugsy I am done.................................... Evil Grin
