I thought of one of the few Eastern game fish not introduced to the Pacific Northwest, and that is the muskie. I wonder why? We introduced Northern Pike and Tiger Muskies, why not introduce muskellunge to the West? Or have they already done this and I just haven't seen one yet?
my guess would be because N. Pike spawn earlier and their YOY can pick off all the musky YOY. Pike and tigers together seem like a pretty hostile environment for a musky. Their would just be too much competition.
But that has never stopped the introduction of fish before...

Are you really asking why not? There are countless reasons why not; it is unnecessary to go over them again here. Search around the forums for introduced game fish and you'll find lots of discussion.
Well, they already threw Tiger Muskie and Northern Pike in to the gears here, and pureblood Muskies seem like a logical fish to introduce. Might as well go the whole nine yards, the way I see it. But then nobody from Fish and Game asked me.
