Yes. Catching trout with spinners is a snap. Catching them with a worm is a snap. Catching them with a rapalla is a snap. Catching them on a fly is more difficult. Look, call the DNR if you want facts. They put the regs in place, I just abide by them. They have statistics for the past 60 years, perhaps you can shuffle through their archives. But I suspect no amount of evidence will change your mind about regs so I'm done with this conversation. The bottom line is that there are restrictions on many Michigan rives. They have been there for decades. They will continue to be there for decades. The DNR stocks streams and they put regulations in place for a reason. You have two choices, abide by the regs, or break the regs. Whinning about them will not change them.
