I talked to Jim at rmo and he did say to keep big pike over the slot so ... I called the biologist and he promptly called me back I would like to help manage the lake I told him he said people that fish at
w f are good about putting the big ones back . He also said they were worried about the kokanee especially in the 10 inch range . Needless to say Jim said the pike grow about 6 inches a year .. not correct they grow at that rate tell they reach 30 inches then they slow to about 2 inches a year so I'm going to keep the small fish to eat and put the big boys back .. personally I think they should not allow outfitters on our public water . All this coming from fishing at the fork since 1978!!!
These side effects are indeed pretty brutal.Screening off and electrifying the River shut off all of the natural Kokanee spawning areas in the River and has been detrimental to the Brown Trout trying to spawn also.
The egg taking program resulted in the closing of the inlet and the loss of fishing areas clear out to the buoys.
When the Kokanee were crashing in the late 90's at Granby due to multiple reasons the result was the loss of the Historic Slot protection on Lake trout and raising of the the limit.These side effects are indeed pretty brutal.
You mention working hard at some point to get WF as an egg take location. Just curious, what were the motivations / foreseeable benefits of that at the time?
