    Thanks for the reply. I may do a deeper dive on this just to satisfy my own curiosity more. I wonder how planter trout would have more disease than , say, the steelhead and salmon being raised at that same hatchery yet are planted.

Not exactly the quality of fish being talked about here, but it would allow some good holdovers to show eventually.

    Not just on the banks either, seen rattlesnakes swimming across small rivers. So stay vigilant and have paddle ready to whack one if it swims to you.
