    flatlander_ Really? Show me. .

    Probably one of those fish poachers using cheese flavored bait or something. :D

    The park rangers and game wardens have definitely been passing out autographs lately. :D

    You just can't underestimate the general public, you are fishing in a STATE PARK! It's a shame but I'm sure many of them could spend every weekend there and stay busy.

    What would the big one weigh in that picture just out of curiosity.

    I’ll be down at Bennett this weekend and Monday. Then it’s off to the woods till next Monday. Hopefully the deer cooperate while I’m on vacation. I haven’t hunted a minute yet this year. Fishing hasn’t been super at Bennett, but the fish size has been mediocre the last month or so.

    Last month the stream was loaded with really nice fish. Bunches of 2lb fish to go around.

    Stay busy. An undercover agent could fill a ticket book in a few hours if no one else knew he was there.
    Illegal bait (paste and salmon eggs) and litter are the worst offenses, followed by no tags and over the limit.

    That's a 12 in composite board at the cleaning station. The biggest one was almost 17 inches and maybe 2 1/2 pounds. A fierce fight on 2 lb test and ultralight spinning gear. :cheers:
