    Re: DFW Mother Lode Trout Stocking

    Lots of good conversation on this thread, but unless you express your concerns to DFW better put away the shad and needle fish and dust off the crank baits and rubber worms.

    Well I've never fished pyramid. My experience with the lahontans is from a lake up highway 4 and Crowley. The Crowley lahontans are amazing eating, and fighters, the bows in there jump more but I think the cutts pull harder.

    I was joking about putting them in Melones, but not Kings, I think they should put kings in there.

    Yep and they have plenty of food sources and the Truckee River flowing into the lake. Also a bunch of areas that are off limits to fishing......Jetspray

    don`t be surprised if they start planting Stripers in Melones like they did Hogan. That would be the happy medium to replace trout period!!!

    Good point and don`t forget our License fees goes up and up and is the Most expensive n the entire USA and for those that have money would rather spend what they have elsewhere than waste it knowing that it is all about just getting your hook wet and nothing else . fees will increase as we loose fisherman or future interest in fishing as well as more resources that should go into the fisheries , like you said,, Moonbeam don`t fish and Newsom i`m sure does not Fish and if Cox Wins the Governors seat what make you think he even fishes??? or gives a raps ass . what we need is a Outdoors man in Sacrament and Whats the chance of that happenning??.............. slim and None !
