It never ceases to amaze me....

I saw this on Moldy Chum and thought I would pass it along. If you see anyone doing this report them and then slap them upside the head please.

Oregon State Police are reporting that there are some idiots on the Rogue catching wild steelhead, clipping their adipose, then releasing them so the next person to catch the fish can keep it as a hatchery fish.

It's not just happening on the Rogue.

While somewhat isolated now on the Rogue, the practice has been more pronounced on the nearby Umpqua River, where no wild steelhead can be kept.

Jail time and heavy fines await anyone caught clipping wild steelhead.
