RE:Trout Stocking 2001
>>but what bugs me a little is the lack of thinking about protection and welfare of existing wild fish stocks by F&G agencies. Maybe they're thinking about it but not publishing anything?<<
They are indeed, and that's part of the point. I talked to a DFW guy a couple of years ago about some wild trout streams and one of the points he made was that he stopped stocking a certain river in order to have it fall off the stocking lists and hence off many people's fishing destinations.
If a river looks trouty and it's not on a stocking list it may be an intentional effort on the part of the state to restore a wild fishery.
