Urban sprawl has been dramatic since the 80s, and stocking numbers are way down. A lot of that good fishing was due to stocking. The strain from urbanization must be immense, especially on lake o tribs.
Remember there is lake fishing as well, and their harvest limits have been cut by 60% yet the numbers keep dropping.
From what i see on lake o tribs there is very little retention. Most guys c&r now and still the numbers drop.
Obviously numbers are down, but from what i can garner its a bigger issue than angler harvest. Something is up with the creeks and the main lake. Would you get more fish returning with full c&r? Probably a few, but it wouldn't be the saving grace for great lakes steelhead.

#336470 Fly Tying Photo Thread

Posted by Swing4Steel on 20 September 2016 - 02:55 PM

I make them from size 2 streamer hooks.50 hooks are 4 bucks at sail.I wouldn't pay for shanks to fish on sink tips. I prep the loop,tie the fly and then break the bend off. I find they're sharp if you cut them.
Sometimes I prep a bunch at a sitting

Or you can go to Barton st in Hamilton with $5 and save $1495 for Iceland. Nado I think you can get your gear decontamination at the airport . May as well put yourself through it if you choose to visit west Hamilton before you fly out
