I am already ducking from the stones that are headed my way I got my first lake run brown last weekend out of one of the mile creeks. 22 inches and 6 lbs. I initially kept it, with the thoughts of getting a nice skin mount of the football, but ended up grilling it. Not as good as fresh steelhead, but not bad either. Please be nice. It came on a oregon cheese single egg in some slow water, and fought a little harder than a same sized steelie in my opinion

No stones - just want to say nice fish and would love to catch one like it myself. Never catch squat on oregon cheese!

What I do is get a bunch of pictures length and girth measurements in the pics as well for plastic mounts and keep good ones once in a while for the grill.

Are you concerned about stones thrown out of jealousy or stones thrown because of keeping it? I'd only toss a pebble for the former. I didn't make it to Erie last year, so haven't had a chance to try for a brown, but that would be icing on an Erie trip if I caught one.

I was thinking more on the lines of stones thrown for killing it, I had not considered the jealousy motive. Thanks for the comments though, and I don't wanna speak too soon, but I think that Brown Trout stocking program is going to work out for the better based on what I've seen and heard from close friends in the area!!! I still have my fingers crossed, but hopefully there will be plenty to go around in the years to come.
