Over just a few years the fishing improved, and the rancher was approached more often by people who wanted to fish. He began to charge a fee and to limit the number of anglers allowed to fish each day. He was surprised how many people were willing to pay to fish, and a few years ago he began using the money to pay a stream-keeper to manage and improve the spring creek. The keeper brought in gravel to provide more good spawning habitat, planted some willows along the streambed, did more fencing, and removed some of the agricultural junk that littered the yard and the stream itself.
In many of these places, brook trout are now exempt from the catch-and-release regulations that apply to other species, and anglers are encouraged to harvest them to make room for the natives. On one stream, from 1999 through 2001, anglers were allowed to fish but only if they killed every brook trout they caught. This was done as an experiment to determine if brook trout numbers could be adequately reduced by angling. Early indications are that the experiment is working; that is, that the population of brook trout has decreased and the population of natives has increased.
In these places the brookies rarely get big, and consequently they don’t get the attention that other species might. Many people, though, consider them the prettiest of all trout, and I hope there will always be a place in our sport, even in the West, for small creeks full of small brook trout, where small kids can catch them.
