Chesterdog is that a WA lake? Nice fish!

It was caught on a small lake in a Hancock forest management property in Washington.  Our research showed that this lake was stocked pre-1950 by someone who had to hike them up in a pack.  This fish is a remnant survivor.  Super cool!

I don't believe (could be wrong) that they were stocking Golden's pre-1950. They didn't start releasing all the stocking data to the public until the last decade. So there is a really good chance it's been stocked recently.

Nice golden by the way.

Groups like TBers or the state do not stock on any Weyco property. Also a fishes life span in these lakes is around 8 8 yrs give or take some

It was more than 3 miles from any dirt road or established trail, way up in a timber resource.  The last mile was all deer trails and bushwhacking.  Looked like no one had been there in a long while (I'm sure a trail cam would prove me wrong though).

Please educate me.  What are the TB'ers group?  Is that stocking from a plane?

They stock fish all over the place.  Sometimes even unnamed lakes, with as few as 50 fry.  Thatís how they get big with limited food supplies.  Iím not aware of any naturally reproducing Goldenís in WA, but there could be.
