2 Trips to Lynn Camp
I was the 1st one to sign in opening mourning of the fish out. The fishing was GREAT!! I caught and kept 58 Rainbows 6'' to 11" I caught and released 30 rainbows 3"-5" I fished from 7:15-1"00. I went back the 1st Sunday was 3rd to sign in again the fishing was great I caught and kept 50 Rainbows 5" to 9" I caught and released 12 rainbows 3"-4" I fished from 8:00-1:00. I had a BLAST both trips. Thats 108 5"-11" Rainbows kept 42 3"-5" Rainbows released. That little creek is full of fish I only wish I could have went back 3 or 4 more times. I thank The LORD for every chance I get to go. Good Luck to All. Sincerly Caught 108

My trip's success isn't measured in inches or fish kept but sounds like you had fun

You know, you weren't supposed to release ANY of the rainbows during the fishout....

It may have been tough to carry a toe sack full of them out, haha, glad you helped get rid of a few of em anyways.:biggrin:

I rarely keep trout when I fish. Did most people keep the fish and just toss them somewhere? Did you fillet 3-5 inch trout and eat them? I have never kept a wild fish. I eat stockers from Tellico or the Hiwassee occasionally. Come to think of it, I have never eaten a brown trout either. What does one do with 108 wild rainbows? I know you were supposed to kill them, seems it would be very troubling for me to do so. :frown:

OK, Dumb question but what was " allowed" during the fishout that increased catch numbers? was it the bait? Would someone explain the process. Thanks ahead of time.

I fished at Lynn Camp 2 times myself. Both times I caught a lot of fish. I know that my brother and I followed you the first day we fished. I'm glad that you had fun and you caught that many fish. The people working at the tent told me that they wished more people had turned out for the fish out. They also told me that the few people who showed up to fish did not hurt the population in this stream. I feel like the fish that people caught helped the park some what. I hate to see all of those fish that are going to be killed go to waste. I know that they will go back into the ecosystem as food for the animals and such. So, I guess that the fish are not going to waste so to speak. I would like to see the park open the fish out again for a couple of weeks. Again great 2 days of fishing...

May God Bless You...

Dukee, Nothing out of the ordinary was allowed. Still Single Hook Artificial only.

Sorry, Shaggy I was responding to Caught 108 about his trips to Lynn Camp. Put the wrong name at the start my mistake...

I participated in the fishout, on the first day, and while I didn't catch nearly as many fish, I had a decent stringer of them. I had a few that were decent sized, but I also had a few very small ones, and it was a very strange, uncomfortable feeling keeping those. They're in my freezer now, and I'll eat all of them, even the small ones - I'll just grill them whole...if I had to keep them, I won't waste them. I can't stand the attitude a lot of people down here have - they don't consider a trip a success unless they load up their ice chests with speckled trout and redfish - then, because they're lazy and sunburned (and sometimes half crocked from beer), they give the fish away to their neighbors or the cats because they don't feel like cleaning them.
