People, can you please tell me the thrill in fishing for stocked fingerling fish in an environment where they will most likely die. Meanwhile you are stacked up with other fisherman. That does not seem like much fun. I am an avid outdoorsman, and just do not see the sport or enjoyment that can be had out of that. Please enlighten me.

CPR and Tight lines!

because they can be caught and then you can catch them later.

There is a thrill in catching these trout because they can be caught early in the year most other species are not bitting this early yet. Also these trout are not fingerlings as you reffered to them as. They probably average 12 inches and they do make a good meal.

Thank you, I did not know. I can see the thrill I suppose. I personally would prefer to go out on Lake Michigan, or to a little more remote are. However, I guess it makes a good Sunday with the kids.

I dont see why people keep fish though from areas that have alot of pressure. That is why the fishing usually stinks.

If you think the Forest Preserves are bad, go to the Root some time.

CPR,

Just so that I'm clear what is wrong with the Root River. Was it the run of over 10,000 kings that were passed thru the weir in 2001? Is it fishing with some decent people and having the opportunity to catch some really big inland fish. I spent incredible fall day fishing with I guy from St. Louis during the week, we had a great hole all to ourselves and slammed fish all day. I was able to teach him some things about drift fishing and he gave me the chance to fish with a truly interesting man. By the end of the day I found out that this gentlemen lived in the same town as my sister and that they may have know each other. Fishing is what you want to make of it. I have fished with a lot of really good people on the Root. Yes I run across some real a$$holes but those are the same people that won't let you change lanes on the highway or cut in front of you at the store. Fishing is a place for men and women to come together and get pleasure from the sport and teach each other something new. There is nothing better than fishing with a bunch of guys you don’t know shooting the breeze and telling stories (lies). Two years ago my wife thought she would see why I was always going fishing, now from May thru September (fair weather fisher person) I've got a new partner. She thinks that fishermen are some of the friendly people. And I dig having her with me.

I agree on the Root River theory. As long as people pick up their trash and cigarrette buttes, and dont creep up on your hole. I have had people come within 5 feet of me to get in on my hole. That irritates me.

But by and large people are good, and fisherman get along well. I love the Root, I only went once last fall and caught 3 nice fresh Chinook over 20LBS

The thrill -

Two trout filets, fresh from the pond and into my frying pan, with a little butter and lemon. Then onto my plate, and an ice cold Miller. Ah. Yes.

I agree, the root river is packed, but offers exelent fishing opportuities. I was just there Easter morning and ran into some monster rainbows. I actually caught a little brown trout! he must have been naturally bred because his fin tips were sharp as a knife. i found a place where there was NO ONE at all and there were fish everywhere. Good thing i have family 1 mile away. Anyone know when the brown trout run is?
