Re: Catch and Release or...
I am all for catch and release and practice it myself. The larger fish, especially the rainbows, have much larger demands on the food sources. The result is less food spread over a large fish population which means you have smaller fish. There is nothing wrong in keeping a few fish in the 10-12" range for the rainbows but as a previous post stated, they should be consumed the same day. Trout does not keep well in the freezer.
