Sometime during high water last year, a few trout - 4, I think - made it into this culvert 'pond' up the trickle that can take on some river water at a certain height in runoff. A couple have gotten to fair size - 18" - since the pond is spring water, staying a consistent temperature all year. I like to stop as I go over the culvert and watch them cruise around, sometimes sipping bugs as I watch.
Today, there were 3 - apparently hard up to be feeling the need to fish a culvert - brosephs with their truck pulled off the road rigging up rods to fish the culvert.
Maybe it shouldnt piss me off, but it did even tho its (probably?) perfectly legal.
