A lot of people I know don't care about it anymore. Now I don't know if it's just me, but when I was a kid, 12 to 16 years old, I can remember the fish they stocked were bigger and there were more of them. Areas were stocked 3 and sometimes 4 times in a season, and when a creek was stocked, it was stocked. Not just the area close to the road in which the stock truck could pull up to. All of that has fallen by the way side. I'm not complaining about it. I don't fish stocked streams or lakes. I'm content on fishing the river. But, it would be great for the younger generations to experience how it used to be. I know it's impossible now. Money, manpower, quality of streams, all of it plays a part.
