Default Bang Bang Specks and Shrimp

Harvested a couple of specks and cooked them Bang Bang style. They were delicious!!

Most years yes. This has been a very very rainy year and the water was still really cool up high. These conditions may not last throughout the summer though. Just a rare window this year.

Another thing, since you brought it up. Your signature line is way off base. Releasing all trout is not good for a healthy ecosystem. This fish will become stunted. Ask any fisheries biologist...

I'll take the plunge and aid to deerhuntingdawgs argument here. I don't believe I have EVER posted in the freaking food forum, but this post caught my eye. Our specks up here are a plenty. They make good eating. They have made good eats for humans for the last several thousands of years. They are so abundant up here, but most people who aren't from this part of the state don't know where they are or how to find them. They think wild specks are smoke and mirrors and mystical little jewels, but never realize that they just drove right by them. They maintain healthy populations in this state whether some people from outside the mtns realize it or not. If you have ever fished a bluegill heavy pond, you'll understand what DHD is talking about. The overabundance is terrible for the population, and you end up with bluegills like 5" in length on average. Brook trout streams are no different
Stuff them full of tiny specks and zero predation, and that yields 3-4" specks all day long.Have you ever caught a native brook trout before? They don't get stressed as much in the summer as the lowers do. At least that has been my personal observation.

Then things were dang good the only time I got to eat some. Ready made fishsticks.

Stockers are trout yes? Some of them look about as raggedy as the girls working on the corner off Gresham.

All I’m gonna say is that I was catching brook trout in the Chattooga DH until all the locals caught them out on May 15...
