I have heard some rumours that Forrest is scheduled to be killed off this year due to coarse fish that were caught last season. Does any one know if there is any truth to this? :'(

I have heard the same rumour Rick, I was un aware that any coarse fish had been taken this year. Will be sad to lose the lunkers in that lake while it is reahabilitated, but hopefully it will be for the better.

What's a course fish?

i believe it's not "the" forest lake you are thinking of that is infected but another lake named the same that is going to be killed off.
Yes it is the Forest Lake I am talking about! Someone had a confirmed catch of a yellow Perch there last season and the story I was told was about the lake outside of Williams Lake. Apperantly there was an article in BC Outdoors about it in the issure where Jason from Pacific Angler did an article on BBing for steehead! Does anyone remember it? It would be an absolute shame if this happened! :'(

Actually it's in the Jan/Feb issue. Right near the front. They mention that Forest Lake is the first on the list for 2008, but they don't specify if it's the Forrest in the Williams lake area, so maybe theres another??? Hopefully :-\

Good news Eric, it would be a real shame to have lost those giants from Forest because of some self directed morons transplanting of coarse fish.

I second Eric's statement, Jack one of the Fly BC Mods and a great stillwater fisherman out of Billy's Puddle echos the statement that the Forest lake in question is not "THE" Forest Lake.

Needless to say he is happy about it as am I.
