We're putting an education page together.  This is a first draft.  I'm open to suggestions, ideas, additions.

Thanks

Best (and easiest) thing MDC could do is require barbless hooks in the special regulation area like they do here in Arkansas in the C&R areas. I have been checked by the Game Wardens in C&R areas multiple times and that is the first thing they want to look at.

I see lots of nice trout with big scars from folks ripping out a jerkbait with 2 or 3 treble barbed hooks.

Warning! You have violated a rule we haven’t made up yet.

Phil it's a great topic that is very timely.  I was down today and honestly I saw more dead trout than I did people catching.  And big ones, ten or so in the Point Lookout hole.  Talked to a couple of guys from Arkansas who told me about snagging what they estimated to be a five pound fish that was obviously on his last legs.

Tough time of year for the fish.

Just saw a post today of a guide showing his clients holding trout with a boga grip in the trophy area. What an example they are setting.

Here’s a few guides you can hire to kill some fish and then “release” them.
