fished straight run today in the state forest. They havn't gone to spawning colors as of yet. all fish took a Lt. Orange Honey Bug. there were a few Oct. Caddis coming off. water was a nice 47.5 deg. clear and normal flow.

found some kind of fish cages there as well, all were labeled. going to check with P.F.C. tommorrow.

Speculation:

Because of the lettering "J-hook, deep hooked," it looks like they were doing a fishing mortality study-- likely releasing the trout into the cages for recovery or to see if they would die.

to me it looks like it says:

"J Hook Keep Locked"

...regardless, very interested to hear what those cages are all about.

Was up there with the family taking the dogs for a walk, there is a heavily used trail next to the stream, anyhow cages are now marked Mansfield U fisheries study. So for the most part that is explained, like Jack said most likely some sort of mortality study.

Sounds like the prof. at mansfield got into hot water for not getting a permit. Why they have to use a class "A" stream is not right in my book. There were a lot of dace in them, wonder how you get a dace to swallow a treble hook.

Mansfield has been studying Straight Run for quite some time. I've talked to the Prof about it. I've also fished it with TB and once caught a wild tiger there. To me it's not really worth the time it takes to fish it. There are many better streams around.

I say we find whoever did this and beat the crap out of them. Maybe they'll think twice before ruining a class A trout stream.
