Humbling... yes. As a biologist, it drives me insane. I KNOW the fish are there... now to just get them to BITE!! Do a Poudre river sampling and see how many trout you sample. You'll be thinking differently from there on.
What's also a fact, is that these guys go out, rain, shine, blistering hot, and freezing cold, all to make sure that we have a good time fishing.

Volunteered for the kokanee milking at wolford this year...gives you a real appreciation for how much work it is to set up the trap, get the barge out to the trap when its cold and dont want to start, the cold conditions handling the fish in freezing water with just wool gloves to grab the kokes...back breaking hunched over cleaning the eggs after the milt...all so we can have the privilege of fishing...that brown and all other rainbows caught in the koke trap were returned and still swimming...
RogBow...nice try but it's more like 1000 walleye for every one we catch. You would be shocked at how many walleyes there actually are and especially by how big they are. I saw two twin 15lbers in one net in September at a very popular local lake...I've never heard of one legitimately over 10lbs being caught by anglers there. It's humbling what actually lives in our lakes compared to what we catch.

Very cool video thanks for sharing. I've always mostly bass fished horsetooth in the past. I sold the bass boat and bought a Lund deep V and been chasing walleye the last couple years mostly fishing the eastern planes lakes and have neglected horsetooth. Now it's back on my list. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing. Im entertained at how a YouTuber comments how he is surprised there is mercury in the fish. Along with fish sampling the state releasing toxicology reports as mentioned in the video and I highly suggest checking them out
