Wild bows suprise me, a bit. I suppose occasionally a stocked bow may be successful at reproducing in Cacoosing. Probably would not represent a stable population by any stretch of the imagination.

Browns don't surprise me at all. I've caught numbers of wild browns from Cacoosing down.

Sas,
Regarding the Tully, it never crossed my mind that you might intentionally be stirring the pot. Your comment was innocent enough, but by its nature and with the stream's past history I had to speak up quickly in order to keep that subject from reeling its ugly head again.

By the way, we have occasionally recovered a wild RT fingerling or two in that general stretch of the stream (Cacoosing Ck downstream to the Rt 222 bridge). Likewise for a few brown trout fings as well.

Gotcha!

I know that they're upstream of the dam, but that's no surprise to anybody.

There are RT reproducing in Plumb Creek also. I'm sure some of them make their way down into the Tully.

Hey Mike, have you ever thought about trying the RT fingerling program again in the Tully? LOL.

In all seriousness, and certainly not starting that conversation again, what was the average annual fingerling stocking back in the day. I thought it was like 6 kazillion billion, but recently overheard someone say "a few thousand". Wasn't it between 10,000 - 15,000?

The DH Area typically received 6000 RT and 4000 to 6000 BT. The greater or lesser numbers of BT never seemed to make much of a difference. RT typically survived much better and predominated in the fishery.

P.S. for eunanhendron. That little shallow run under the blue herons beak. Yeah, I recognize it. It's much shallower than the pool but I've caught my share of fish right there, specially early in the year before any hatches start up. Aside from the current break where Cacoosing and the Tully meet, it's one of the better spots of the hole.

Later in the year I avoid the paper mill like the plague. Nobody goes there anymore because it's too crowded. :)
