The Lynn Camp Prong brook trout restoration program in the Smokies is one of the best examples of native brook trout restoration here in the Southeast. Park biologist, and leader of the project, Steve Moore and countless others who care about bringing Appalachia's only native trout (well, char) back from near extinction are working hard. They electro-shocked Lynn Camp Prong in order to eliminate the non-native rainbow trout several months ago. When they returned to electro-shock a few days ago, they hoped to only capture good numbers of healthy brook trout. What they shockingly found was several good sized rainbow trout, obviously intentionally stocked into the stream by careless and selfish fisherman who wanted rainbow trout to dominate Lynn Camp. A good portion of the proceeds from Troutfest went to the Lynn Camp Prong restoration project. Thanks to the idiotic choices of these careless fisherman, the Lynn Camp project has now went awry. Let's hope the Park service can get back on track. Oh yeah, it would likely be a $250,000-$300,000 fine...
