No we don't, our federal taxes are spent on a million things that are so far removed from fish they can't even see water. Such as huge entitlement programs, health care, stimulus plans, etc etc.
Just think how many fish could be stocked with the 800 billion dollars wasted on the 2009 Stimulus plan? Or how many fish weren't stocked because "someone" paid off their political buddies with money invested into their "green energy" companies which are now bankrupt.
Our federal tax dollars are wasted so badly it should be considered an atrocity by anyone who pays taxes.
I have said it before, and will again the federal govt has zero business raising fish. Last time I checked the constitution was missing a section dealing with fishery stocking.
