    If you go to the Woodland Park Zoo, take a look in the pool at the Red Ruffed Lemur exhibit. They have a half dozen LARGE stockers in there! They go nuts when they throw pellets to them. Smallest looked to be about 2 feet. Largest ran closer to 3. More Steelhead size than 'bows. Just make up a few pellet flies, put on some light tippet, and enjoy the (brief) fun.

    Of course, you might want to wear some good running shoes and a disguise. Probably some rule against taking a fish for a walk in the zoo ;).

    I have the same thoughts when I watch the carp in the pond when I take my kids to Wild Waves. Man that whole place is gross.

    I always look when i'm there but I'll have to look closer next time.

    It must be open though, i don't see it listed in the special rules.
