And how did you originally find out about the brook
trout streams you fish? I assume that you either read
about them or picked it up through conversation with
other anglers. I've only stumbled upon one brookie
stream by accident myself (and it was paralleled by a
highway if you can believe that). Very few of the
people who subscribe to this board are willing or even
interested in walking a couple miles to catch fish that
average between five and six inches long. Even if they
were, I'm not against telling them where to go. The more
people fish small streams and become aware of their fragility,
and that of their inhabitants (particularly native trout),
the more likely they are to take interest in their plight.
Our small streams and wild and native trout aren't something to be
locked away and guarded, but something to be shared and
preserved. More people taking an interest now equates to more
preservation in the future.
