Hatchery truck was on its way to Georgetown and somehow the fish started to get stressed so they dumped them all at the Frisco Bay Marina.
Before that, we got 15,000 which were a mix of catchables and sub catchables.

My 3 year old daughter, myself, and the browns have been having a blast!

Yep dump enough bait in the lake and something will happen.
That, plus about one out of about every 4 char we catch has brown trout teeth marks on it. one out of every 3 arctic char are a product of natural reproduction. There is lots and lots of food in there now that wasn't there 5 years ago.
The gill net surveys show, that as the browns are getting bigger and more plenty full, sucker population is going down. Dillon needs a slot protection on Browns, but when they found out Browns eat alot of Char, a slot on browns will never happen.
If a guy catches a 3 year old 10" arctic char he must release it immediately.
A 15 inch brown in Dillon takes 12 years to grow with a historically extremely slow growth rate past 15 inches. If a guy catches 4 two footers that are probably 20 plus years old he can take them home.
Some things just don't make a whole lot of sense, but I'm just a dumb fisherman.

Cute kid man!

Love how she matched her wardrobe to her rod.

Definitely put a smile on my face this morning, which I needed.

Sweet!
