i've had trouble finding fish this year, i dont think its from a lack of numbers as much as a lack of ability to reproduce because they get pulled out of the streams very early. Sadly, the only way to fix this problem would be to increase numbers of stocked fish or reduce the , already low limit, of 3 fish. the main problem is the people who go out, catch their 3 fish, go back to their truck, throw them in the bed, and do it again. Then they are the same people to complain about a lack of fish in the streams.
just a thought, its a little frustrating. my dad used to tell me stories of going fishing in august and seeing the waves turn silver because they are full of fish. It is sad i have never, and likely will never see those numbers.
Personally i think they are overfished and under-stocked, also, the fish commission is very inconsistent with their stocking locations and times. if they would be more consistent, more people would volunteer to help stock.
thats just my two cents take it as you will.
do i think that licenses are expensive, yes, but 1 i dont have to pay for one yet, and 2 what are you going to do about it.
