Got my replica cow dolphin on Friday and just got finished hanging it up. I am happy with the addition. Now I just need to get the antelope up on the left side of the wall! Image1466371831.696994.jpgImage1466371847.864318.jpgImage1466371858.341056.jpgImage1466371868.018796.jpg

Who else is confused about California's Brook trout regs?

Daily trout limit 5

Daily bonus Brook trout 10 fish under 10 inches

Does that mean you could keep 5 brookies over 10" and 10 under 10" for a total of 15 Brook trout a day? Or 15 brookies regardless of length?

Obviously there is the daily limit of 5 trout and salmon in combination. I just have some areas that have so much Brook trout and are stunted. That's why California has this bonus limit of undersized brookies.

Is anybody else as confused as I am? I have a cdfw buddy who was a regional trout biologist and he is confused with the Brook trout regulations as well.

Don't know for sure but a brook trout is a char and a trout is a trout. So if it were me I would keep 5 rainbow trout(or brown trout or combination thereof) and 10 brook trout under 10 inches for a total for two different species of 15. Not saying I'm right but if stopped and had this combination no way can they write a ticket if that's how it reads.
