Stoned Fly Nymph for Trout??

Finally tonight - San Benito County, California officials are waging war on pot growers in the area. One of their reasons for doing so: "State authorities are also concerned about the environmental destruction the growers wreak by dumping pesticides and chemical fertilizers near creeks and lakes, where they can endanger coastal steelhead and salmon runs and trout, said State Fish and Game Warden Jeremy Bonesio, who was among the 30 federal, state and local officers participating in the Thursday raid 50 miles south of Hollister."

Area fishermen have mixed feelings about this campaign, as trout that swim in streams near these illegal fields seem to be hungry all the time...
