YEARS AGO I WAS FLYING BACK FROM OUT WEST SOMEWHERE AND 2 GUYS IN FRONT OF ME WERE TALKING. 1 GUY WAS TELLING A GUY FROM ARKANSAS HOW THEY HAD BEEN TROUT FISHING BUT THAT IT WAS CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY. THE GUY FROM ARKANSAS HAD NEVER HEARD OF THE CONCEPT OF CATCH AND RELEASE AND SAID HE WAS NOT SURE THAT WAS LEGAL IN ARKANSAS, IT WAS ALL I COULD TO KEEP FROM LOL.


They stock trout in local lakes here. They are not native. If you catch one.....it stands very little chance of survival upon release. He may have had regulations where he lived addressing such matters.
You cant relate what you ?know? to every part of the country, in every circumstance. A lot of the same applies to hunting. People, areas, and circumstances differ.
