Caught & released 6 speckled trout on the Mad River on Wednesday. Water clarity was very good. Biting on red worms. Trout seemed to be holed up just below the spillway under the route 36 bridge. Tried a couple of other sections of the river north, but only caught bait fish. Wednesday was overcast, in the low 80's. Went out again on Thursday, and caught & released two more in the same section of the river in about an hour timeframe. Sunny, mid 80's. Then some guy came by with a casting net and started pitching in the current. I asked him what he was looking to catch and he said bait fish. Seemed reasonable till I see him pull the net out and put what he caught in a bag and put in the back of his car. I pressed him a bit about it being illegal to net cast for trout and he left after exchanging a few, get out of my business remarks.
