Thread: This is not a Bass

  1. #1

    Default This is not [ROTENONE] a Bass

    For those who do kill bass on trout streams, please make sure you are not killing these cape kurper which look similar.
    They are found (along with red fin minnows and galaxias) in the upper reaches of all non-rotenoned trout streams.



    Caught at stream X on a bead head caddis.

    "... in all non-rotenoned trout streams."

    Just how many streams have been rotenoned and which ones?

    Just what I though. Looks nothing like a bass.
