I was fishing the Yampa for Pike last weekend with spinning gear and caught a couple of nice fish. 22" and 28". During my outing I was checked by the CDW and started talking to them about the fishery. They were surprised I had caught the Northerns as they have been shocking and removing Pike from the river for a while. Am I the only one who enjoys Pike? Is't it time the trout snobs don't get there way? How much money has the CDW spend in this river , Stagecoach, and other waters tring to appease the trout folks. The truth is the Pike are not native, but neither are the rainbow, brown or brook trout in htis drainage. All of these fish have been indroduced into this drainage by the CDW why is it the CDW continues to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to trump one species over another. Either all non native fish should go or we need to start using some common sense.
