Default Wrong Place, Wrong Fish

I would be against it, and I suspect the Park Service would be too, because trout just aren't built for that type of handling and pressure. Bass, etc are more rugged; no problem chucking them in a livewell for a while before weighing them. The ones that I've seen on TV involving trout were measured on the spot before being released, but it was still a lot of handling, and it wasn't that many fishermen involved.
