The weekend fishery at Cottonwood is a snagfest. It's funny, every single fish you can hear caught at Cottonwood Creek somehow never ends up back in the water. Yet I caught countless fish with not a single one caught legal INSIDE the mouth. I can't even count how many times I've heard "looks like the mouth to me". Just about every person leaving there has their limit somehow and I guarantee 85% of them (maybe more) snagged all 3 of their fish. It may not be that they're intentionally snagged the fish, but they foul hooked the fish and kept them, when they should have been thrown back. I was foul hooking fish all day while trying to catch them in the mouth, but I throw them back unless it's inside the mouth. My buddy does the same there and actually called the troopers yesterday. There needs to be much more of a trooper presence at Cottonwood, or else the lawlessness will never end. It's impossible at Cottonwood not to foul hook fish, and maybe there should be some adjustments to the law, but the present law is all we have. If I have to follow, so should everyone else. It's the most aggravating thing, to see all these people leaving with their limits while you're working your butt off trying to get one legal. Anyways, just a bit of a rant. Thanks for listening.
