As has been posted here on many occasions there is not an over abundance of food in the park's waters....what food sources there are will only support a certain number of fish before affecting the ability of the fish to grow....best example is a farm pond where the population is allowed to grow without any harvesting...in the most recent example of the droughts reference in this post Mother Nature did the harvesting allowing the remaining trout a larger supply of food to go around....this is the reason that the park's biologists say that a pure catch and release attitude does not benefit the overall fish population in the park...it does not hurt to occasionally keep a trout or two to enjoy with some grits and hushpuppies...the proof is in the pudding.
