  1. The dreaded mop fly...LOL At least it wasn't blue or purple. They do work and I carry a few for prospecting new water.
  2. Looks like a successful trip. Any bugs coming off the water? What flies were you using?

    Very nice jersey brown trout

    That is interesting. What section(s)? I thought the only private section was thru the campground but they allow fishing to all.

    Thanks Dave did not know that. I fish the FB often but i'm always up in the C&R section. Yes there is a lot of predation on the FB from both air and land.

    They look like Musky Hatchery Trout. My question is, if holdovers, from how long ago. I don't know of any private stretches or clubs on the Flatbrook. The stretch thru the camp ground can be accessed by the public. Who and where would do a private stocking of the Flatbrook, and why? Nice fish BTW. I'm a C&R guy, sad to see them land in the frying pan.

    Good day fishing

    Is that the FB? Was thinking of going to the no-kill stretch tomorrow, having second thoughts. Maybe range instead.

    Two flys and 30+ trout

    You had a great day! Just got back from a stream myself; did well on a squirmy figured it would after the rain stopped. All fish released to fight another day.

    LOL...no funky colors. Tan and olive, gotta keep it a little on the up-and-up.

    I'll use a mop fly when fishing new water sometimes just to see if anything is there, then switch to a more traditional fly. They do work, it imitates a big fat grub extremely well, probably why they work so well.

    What do you use?

    If you and your daughters catch and release go with the heavier line, typically 6lb.

    Barbless hooks at Flatbrook and KLG

    Yes. It's clear that as written, there is a distinction between lures and flies. Doesn't matter if you are spin or fly fishing, the reg doesn't reference the type of reel or rod. I've seen people with spin gear casting flies with an indicator. I've also seen fly anglers using plugs with treble hooks.

    The Digest is what is published for the folks to live by; therefore right or wrong it is the regulations. I have no issues pinching barbs. I always pinch barbs except for tiny midges; I’m strictly C&R when it comes to Trout. My issue if our government is making a regulation, then getting the wording wrong. This regulation (intent) is good, some are not. I’m not struggling either, they got it wrong when they put ink to paper.

    With all due respect to Lisa; the way it's written is wrong if that is their intent, and that comment is clearly her opinion. She either needs to rewrite it, or add a definitions section. The way it's currently written, there is a clear legal difference between a fly and a lure in the context of the regulation.
