After seeing how the dow treats my favorite sport fish, I would much rather see the anglers, not the dow help to keep the balance if needed. Every lake is different and the problems at blue mesa coincide with the perch invasion, damn operation changes (allowing macs better spawning success) and limited pressure along with abnormal growth rates. At Grand lake the fish don't spawn successfully and after years of no stocking the fishing has tanked. At Granby the lakers have a much slower growth rate then blue mesa and take many many years to replace a large fish, the eater size fish (-20") are normally plentiful but we do see year round pressure and high ice fishing pressure which helps keep the population in check and continued high water years can result in a loss of plankton and poor kokanee years like what happened 10 years ago, it was the lake trout anglers who pushed and worked to get williams fork going as an alternative egg source as the dows solution was to only liberalize lake trout limits. So 10 years later the kokanee are rebounding. So go ahead and harvest your limit of under 20" lakers and let the big ones go to help preserve the future of lake trout fishing and help us get a regulation change for Granby similar to flaming gorge ( 4 fish with only one over 28") Yes we can.
