When is the last time you caught BIG trout?

Well... according to a Western Outdoor News (WON) editorial it may have been long ago.

"The cutback in trout raised by and planted by the California Department of Fish and Game (DFW) that has been going on for at least 8 years is continuing to have a major impact on anglers statewide, and some guides are calling for the DFW to get back on track and expand trout production and plants," writes WON.

Has the quality of fishing declined at your favorite fishing hole? If yes, tell us where.
