Lauxier--A wild trout of seven inches or slightly larger, freshly caught and properly kitted out in a cornmeal dinner jacket, is a culinary thing of joy forever; something to bring tears of pure joy to a mountain gourmet. It's also heartening to know, as one eats fish, that keeping a limit in most Park waters actually does the fish a favor. Most Park streams are overpopulated, thanks in part to a rather meager food base.
As for those hatchery-raised fish, they are culinary abominations. Most of all, I'm just relieved to find someone else of what my late mother referred to as the "release to grease" persuasion.
