BTW, by raising your hand, how many of you have contacted your US senators and representatives about this?
My senator and representative has much more important issues to focus on rather then hatcheries IMO. He should not be involved with fish stocking, and neither should the federal govt.
I think I may contact him, to let him know there is another area they can cut spending out of the federal budget nationwide.
When did fish stocking become an entitlement program that everyone expected the feds to do?
