In the Aug. 21 Opinion page column by Alan Todd, there is a mention about fishing the Gunnison River below the North Fork confluence and a reference to “the rainbow slayer.”

I assume that comment was meant in humor. However, I would like to remind fishermen that in the Gunnison River from Crystal Dam downstream to the Relief Ditch, which includes most of the river below the North Fork, all rainbow trout are to be released.
