  • I feel violated

    Got out after the big release this am. Caught consistent fish on a red or brown midge sizes 18 & 20. Caught the pictured bow and he proceeded to violate my hand and waders with his ‘stuff’. Never had one do that before. Can someone comment on this and do you think they are actually reproducing?

    I've had a few larger (brood) stocked fish try to get frisky with me before. I always thought it was because they spent their entire hatchery life with two functions: grow and reproduce, and the excitement of seeing a human got the juices flowing. Again, I've only seen this with larger fish ( in NC, not GA waters), and I really don't know why, but sure can speculate.

      As a matter of fact, a year ago yesterday at paces I experienced the same thing except I remember it primarily being with recently stocked brown trout. I don't remember if any of the rainbows I caught that day did.

        Super Bowl Sunday

        I caught three browns on the upper tailwaters going towards the dam. The first one was the biggest and 14" in spawning colors and he shot milt EVERYWHERE when I got him out of the net. Seems a bit odd that a streamborn fish would still be in spawning mode in February.

          The numbers and placement of the spots on this bow seemed to me that it was a holdover or a stream-born bow. But I am not a biologist, I just play one on TV.

            Ah good old milt. Ain't lived till a trout has attempted to paint you with love juice.

            Was the fish in question caught anywhere in relation to a creek? They definitely reproduce in the hooch, but not in the main branch, the secondary streams.

              We are the music-makers,
              And we are the dreamers of dreams,
              Wandering by lone sea-breakers
              And sitting by desolate streams;
              World losers and world forsakers,
              On whom the pale moon gleams.

                I've had that happen quite a number of times. I remember one day at Smith Creek DH years ago where that happened twice, and I caught females that just shook out eggs the moment I touched them all in the very same day. All browns I think.
                I never usually fish it until Dec or Jan, which is late for the spawn. I was wondering if the social stress of the raceways, or the stress of being stocked created some sort of delay in reproduction. That year on a different trip I watched browns executing spawning behavior in the creek in Dec or Jan also. Somewhat strange!

                  It was about 50 yds down from Haw Creek. So not really close.

                            Clearly you've never fished for bream in the spring with a friend with a "firm" grip
