Carp Invade Great Lakes o-o
Wow after looking at the picture I could see some series "sport" fishing using a power boat and a machine gun :)
This is the most disturbing part of that whole article."The fish kill has broad support from fish and wildlife officials, environmental groups and the fishing industry. The Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal, an industrial waterway, is 70% wastewater from local sewer systems. Fishing is prohibited."
When I joined this board over the summer, I saw a post sayin carp were ging to be introduced somewhere in the area this board covers. i posted it was a bad idea. To my knowledge, the brown and rainbow trout are one of the few non native fish to have done nothing adverse to the environments they were introduced into.

There are always adverse results (for at least a few species) when foreign invaders come in. At the very least they use up nutrients and food that would support something else/native.
I have learned something new. I guess you can teach an old dog a new trick or two. I am fairly sure rainbows are native out west. are cut throats native to this side of the mississippi? I am fairly new to the trout fishing and I havent read much about the cut throat. From the pictures I have seen the steelhead looks like a giant rainbow. thanks for the new information.
Steelhead are rainbows that find their way to big water and get to eat a little better. Any rainbow fry could grow up to be a steelhead. There is no genetic difference.
Cutthroats (this will get someone upset) are subspecies of rainbows, and are native to the eastern drainages of the Rockies, and related mountain ranges. I have never heard of any native cuts east of the Mississippi, but I suppose that there could be some up in the Canadian planes.
