    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    AKPM, you didn't refer to any areas specifically. You said "go north". It's hard to be indignant about someone's suggestion when you weren't clear in the first place. He wasn't advocating breaking any laws at all, as there are plenty of places up "north" where retention is legal.

    AKPM.. I was busting your chops on cooking the trout. I know you value trout as the holy grail..

    Also on breaking the law. I don't think so. I had no clue the place you were referring to was catch and release only

    the mouths of the creeks in the north with rainbows are generally closed to the reetention of rainbow trout.

    Default "Slight" Correction

    The mouths of the streams "up north" are generally OPEN to the retention of rainbow trout with the exception being Montana. There is a two month closed period April something to June something though. There might be other occassional exceptions as well....but for the most part, yes, you can keep rainbows. Sometimes, I keep them just to spite Monkey.

    That's a good idea. I don't even like trout, but from now on I'm eating it just for P-monk. I'll post pics of the skillet.
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.

    You might want to double check the regs before you keep any rainbows.

    Willow creek is no retention from the mouth to the bridge. (pg 28)
