Default Lake Dillon and Lake Trout

The geniuses at the CDOW had decided that implanting Arctic Char would help clean up their mysis shrimp blunder at Dillon res. So far it appears Arctic Char are not getting the job done.
Does anybody have any thoughts and opinions on planting Lake Trout in Dillon to help curb the Mysis population? I've heard a couple times over the years tales of lakers being caught at Dillon. Are there any old timers on here that can tell me if there were lakers in Dillon in the 70' and 80's when it was one of the best trout fisheries in the state?

Burbot are trash. They taste like poop. I still think some bucket biologists should stock Dillon with macs. At least then there might be a reason to go near that shit hole.

Seriously, lake trout won't be happening but it looks like another crack at the char with a good assortment of splake and some tigers thrown in is the best we will see there. Fresh burbot is a favored delicacy in some areas, boiled in 7-up and dipped in butter is like lobster.

actually burbot, the only freshwater cod is one of the tastiest and healthiest fish you can eat and thriving in cold deep clean waters they should be right at home in dillon with the artic char.
