Re: DEC Announces Public Meetings on New Approach to Inland Trout Stream Management
You can read that list as reduced stocking with the caveat your license fees will still increase as they'll be spending money on "studies". The stocking in Washington, Rennsalaer, and Saratoga Counties has become a joke, with many places listed as being stocked never seeing a single fish. Not my thing, I've caught more than my share by many hundreds, but for those not so dedicated or kids just starting out, it's bogus to play this game. Many states are doing this "wild" game as it allows them to shut hatcheries, reduce expenditures, but still receive tax dollars and license revenues. Valid arguments can be made for it, if you reduce , commensurate with stocking, license fees. Instead, they'll rise.
