Good question & something I've been wondering:


Tiger muskie facts
What are they: Tiger muskellunge are a sterile hybrid of northern pike and muskellunge.

About the fish: Tiger muskies grow rapidly, attaining a length of 20 inches in their first year and 30 inches in their second year. They are ambush predators, feeding primarily on baitfish.

Again it talks about the rapid growth rate for length. Max lifespan is 30 years but not too common, which means some may still lurk in Quincy. It says they'll inhabit shallow weeds or deep open areas. I caught one from each type of area.

The last tiger I saw at Quincy was the year before last, a 30" fish that I took to be a male. It followed up a bait and hung out by the boat for thirty minutes or so. Just followed me around like a dog. I really had very little interest in hooking it, but I did do a half-hearted figure eight...

Funny. The volounteer at Arvada told me last week that it hasn't been stocked with anything but trout for years.

To my knowledge, there is only one true Ranger at Arvada.  I think his name is Mike, and I've only seen him at the lake a couple of times.  The rest are all volunteers that work one shift per week and are pretty questionable about their knowledge so your guess is as good as mine as to what is accurate. For what it's worth, the Fxr stocking report shows channel cats, small mouth and walleye stocked since 2008, but no Tigers.
