Posted by Hank Franklin, OAF  Cousin and I just returned from the Current above Akers. Caught a chain pickerel, which was a first for me. Not knowing the regulations or ethics we turned him loose. Reading up on it today I guess they’re not as rare as I thought and maybe we should have kept him and ate him. Any thoughts?

Fishing was pretty good. We were throwing mainly spoons and jigs but for fun late in the trip I hooked on a wiggle wart and a nice rainbow slammed it so hard it knocked the reel out of my hand. Turned out to be my fish of the trip.

The Current in winter is fantastic, but you all know that.
