Tiger muskie

Is it possible to have a tiger muskie in lonetree? Heeeere is why I ask. Lonetree isn't stocked with tiger muskie. Tiger muskie also are sterile. I don't believe any sort of river runs into this lake. But I watched a massive fish break the water. Now I only saw the jaw come out, and the jaw was huge, shaped exactly like a pike or muskie. Was golden brown. Like tune under jaw was golden brown. Now, if it wasn't a muskie or pike. You might want to say a largemouth. But A. It was golden brown B. It didn't look like a largie. It looked exactly like a muskie or pike mouth. Which is more oval them circle. Plus the size alone would make it the largest largie in the world. I am not kidding or lying. It was so big and horizontal exactly like a muskie it was visible from a good distance and the color doesn't match plus it flapped down not around. It looked as if it was a 45 inch muskie if not more.

Lonetree is currently and indefinitely closed to the public, though there is still a possibility of it being opened on a pay-based system in the future.

Lonetree has been stocked with Tiger Muskie for the last few years, so they're definitely in there. I've also seen one caught out of there a couple of years ago.

There are a few tigers in Lonetree -- just about everything has gotten a handful of tigers over the past decade it seems like. The stocking of them at Lonetree by CPW is documented. I have been bitten off there in the past. That body of water is not open to the public at present of course.

The last available fish survey at Lonetree turned up a tiger in the 30s.

I just now saw the stocking section on this website. My bad everyone. Also I know it's closed. I just noticed the muskie from my friends backyard. Thank you everyone
