Not in Co., but still in our region. Water below Glen Canyon dam known as Lee’s Ferry. Fish & game has declared a bounty on Browns. Any brown caught, guts and head dropped in the box is good for $33.00. If tagged, good for $100.00.
Bad news, it ends tomorrow. Keep ck’ing Az. F&G it’s been underway for months w/ various bounties.
I am familiar w/ the river. In the late 70’s it could not be beat for all trout specie. Now it’s lure & fly only. Looks like beer money if you figure out the hatch.

Any idea why the bounty for browns, seems like they would be suited for that big water and probably wouldn't need to be restocked.

They are not trying to eliminate the Brown trout below Glen Canyon only trying to thin them down so they don't migrate down stream and kill off other endangered species in the river.
