Dave, The wildlife department will tell you they manage the Hybrids for a put n take fish. We grow our own. I am not sure if Co. does or not. I can see if you had to buy from other states or trade with other states why you would manage that way. But they have always told us they set the limits to take the Hybrids when you want. They are put in our lakes for a couple of reasons, one for the sporting nature of the fish(I dont know why anybody wold ever fish for a green perch if they have ever caught a Hybrid
) and two,to help control the shad population. In my opinion something needs to be done in Keystone for the shad population. But they don't want to put the Hybrids there because they don't want them mixing with the Striper population. They say the Hybrids will spawn under certain conditions. But, the Hybrids are starting to show up in Keystone because they are coming down the Arkansas from Kaw.
I don't believe in Miracles, I rely on them.
