Fishing during the spawn (right off the spawn beds) can be an excellent method of population control for over-populated lakes. We did this alot in Texas in bluegill ponds that were stunted and over-populated.

That said, here in Colorado, fishing for bass off the beds ain't cool. Show me an over-populated bass lake here, and then I'll show you some bluefin Tuna in the Platte.

As far as trout go, I can't speak to that. Different species spawn at different times of year, so in a multi-species river or stream, it would be virtually impossible to avoid ALL spawning fish. As far as I can tell, there's no shortage of trout in this state... But like I said, I don't REALLY have a firm grasp on coldwater species' spawning habits.

Fishing on spawning fish is not very sporting at all, best to leave them alone to do there thing with some exceptions, at Granby we fish post spawn lakers but this is for the smaller egg eaters not spawners. The Snake river in Jackson Wyoming is closed the entire month of March so the fish can spawn without being harrassed.

Agreed. The farmers who had us kids do it down there wanted to wipe out as many gills and hybrids as we could to allow the overall size of individual fish get bigger. Some of these ponds were so full of stunted sunfish that they were literally starving... Bonefish, in the most literal sense. Barring conditions such as these, fishing spawn beds is pure cowardice.

Fuk trout.. Who cares?? They will just stock more anyway!! LOL

As far as bass: Professional bass fisherman fish spawning bass off beds every year... And the bass that are kept to weigh dont get released anywhere near where they were bedding. I have no issue with fishing spawning bass.. as long as the fish is handled properly and released in close proximity to where they were caught so they can return to the bed.


I know there will be plenty of people who disagree with me though....

Doesn't take long for the carp to get in there and check into the all-you-can-eat buffet....

They all are JUST FISH.

Go fishing and do what YOU want!


Me I DO NOT fish for fish on the reds.


I will fish during the spawning "season".

Is that unethical?










And ask me if I care about anyone's response to the above question.....
