I constantly take the hatchery fish out of the system to avoid having them bred with native fish as well as thus pass on inferior genetics. Every hatchery fish I've apprehended and also dressed has not had anything in its tummy. From somber inquisitiveness I check. I recognize gross huh.
Perhaps it's a way out, a reason for not apprehending more fish, but I type of like the secret of steelhead. Yeah, at times it's most definitely discouraging getting skunked (again and again once more), yet it gives the fish an instead mystic quality. And also it is this high quality that makes the infrequencies of the reward worth constantly I invest standing out in a freezing stream, in bad climate, unable to feel my fingers.
