Re: Nice Perspective

The problem isn't hatchery trout.

The problem is stocking them over wild trout populations?

Why? Because when that is done, it suppresses the wild trout populations.

If hatchery trout were stocked only where there are no wild trout populations, the number of wild trout in PA would go up.

And it would not have any effect on the number of hatchery trout.

So the TOTAL number of trout in PA would be higher.

More is better!

Re: Nice Perspective

If a guy catches for the table, on a stream that has both wild and stocked fish, would it be fair to say that the stocked fish would be more likely to be caught than the wilds, and possibly that if you take the stocked fish out of the picture he would then in turn keep wild trout thus lowering the population as well? Just a thought

I've fished many streams when they were still stocked, and then in the years after stocking ended.

In general the wild trout fishing has improved, not declined.

Particularly in the case of brook trout. The best fishing for native brook trout is in unstocked streams.
