You lost me there. Why do you feel brown trout should be protected in brook trout streams? Do we not have enough brown trout in the state? Are smaller brook trout streams the best place to protect brown trout? I haven't seen anything that suggests brown trout are a species of greatest conservation need and I don't think we've agreed to try to increase brown trout populations by 8% by 2025. Brown trout aren't declining in numbers. This is where things get too messy to be feasible or defensible.....and make brookies and browns C&R. See what happens....
