I haven't kept any fish, and I'll never keep a brookie or any other wild trout. But what about stockies? Is there any good reason this dad shouldn't bring home some fish to fry up for the kids?

I catch and release, but I'm not against someone taking their limit. They did pay for those stockies to be raised.

The only time I ever keep any stockies is on the opener. It's tradition. C&R the rest of the year, I just don't like going through the hassle with a stringer, cooler, cleaning/gutting, etc. Plus they don't taste all that great compared to walleye, crappie, etc.

I never had crappie but I like walleye. The only warm water fish I've been able to catch around here are smallies. My neighbor the guide had some at his fish fry last year. It was my least favorite.

No reason at all not to keep a few stockies to eat. The last two years I kept only two trout though. One a nice holdover 16" rainbow and the other a 18" golden rainbow that I gave to my neighbor to eat. Hey, those goldfish don't belong in the water anyway. He told me it was very tasty.

I'm mostly c&r with warmwater too, but sometimes(idk, 1-5 times a year) I'll keep some. Walleye, perch, crappie, and gills are my favorites. Depends how you cook them too. I never had bass, and probably never will, but yeah I heard they aren't great.

You've had crappie, beer battered, a long time ago.

Limit your "catch." nothing wrong with keepin' a few here and there.

Stocked trout taste leaves alot to be desired , what they feed them and the way they are raised is why. But whatever floats yer boat. You are perfectly within your right to do so. GO GET 'EM...GOOD LUCK!!!

Cook 'em up with butter, garlic and a little lemon, onions if you like.
You can keep five which isn't much of a meal but if you go out a couple of times and keep a limit that's not going toimpact any population, the reason they stock trout is for guys to catch and keep them. It's not conservation to throw them back.
