The writing is on the wall. Hatcheries are in disrepair, funding is being cut, and the stocking program I'm afraid is seeing it's waning days. I posted last year about how PA's Trout stocking program should be lauded, and how it needs to perpetuate. A handful of superior fisherman, searching for waters, and fishing over a few handfuls of Wild Browns are not going to keep fishing alive. Trout season fills camps, those very camps that are pretty much empty nowadays through most of the Deer season. Spring/Summer camp outings, or fishing destination outings, do more for the local ma and pa's than any other time of year. The state has to do whatever it can to keep, and even enhance this stocking program. It's every bit of PA as rifle season for Deer.
