Letter about restricted access to trout streams

A vast majority of our local anglers and other conservationists may not be aware of proposed new regulations which could dramatically impact trout fishing and the future of our bluff land streams; 137 miles, 23 of our best trout streams, will be called trophy waters and restricted for the exclusive use of the fly fishing fraternity.

Kids, families, seniors, anyone who for whatever reason can't get into the complicated world of fly rods and artificial flies would not be able to fish most streams. Said another way, Grandpa won't be able to sit on his bucket besides these streams and help his grandkids fish with their "bobbers".

The proposed regulations are the result of a small special interest group, who went around our local SE DNR fisheries staff. They used intimidation tactics at meetings and the politics of St. Paul. The local DNR staff I have talked to are hard working, dedicated professionals who sincerely want fishing opportunities for our streams and watersheds. This is about growing big fish for the fly fishing fraternity. Many other good management plans were not even considered.

All other anglers will be crowded onto the poorer streams. Not a good way to introduce kids to fishing. Many of our streams are privately owned, some landowners are not going to be happy to discover they can no longer fish their own property.

No one likes letter writing or going to public meetings, but it will be needed here to keep our streams from becoming the property of an exclusive few. To find out if you will be excluded from your favorite stream next year, and to make your voice heard you can find copies of the proposed regulations at your local DNR office or on their website.

There is a popular campaign called "Take a Kid Fishing". If these regulations are passed it may need to be changed to "take a kid fishing, but just not here."
