I haven't heard if anyone's caught any lately. An ODFW guy told me last year that some angler caught one out of Detroit Rez and called ODFW to ask them about it. That's how ODFW found out that someone did some Midnite stocking....

Detroit is a bit on the cold side for them to really take off. Let's hope not.

Seems like how low the reservoir gets in the winter would make the water move pretty quick, and cold. Maybe there are some big pools they could survive in? Seems like even if they did survive the lake is big enough and the species well enough established that they wouldn't effect the trout too much.

craine praire i think freezes over? not sure! they get pretty big there if u find them! lots of food!

I think a better analog would be Green Peter. Apparently the bass are doing well enough there that they have tournaments for them. If they can survive/thrive in Green Peter the same is likely true for Detroit.

Darn good point there, CC. Who knows? People keep putting invasive species in places they perhaps shouldn't be caused all kinds of problems. Take Diamond Lake's past and more recent Antelope Reservoir.

I have witnessed a little pumpkinseed caught out of Detroit, I believe it was also my buddies first fish ever.
