Some trout on the Caney must survive to reach the limits that they do.
Yes, of course that's true. So maybe it would be fairest to divide up the trout stamp money by percentage of those want to eat trout vs those who want their sterile stockers to die of old age. I don't know what the actual percentages are, but you could divide up the river by who's money pays for more trout to be stocked. That seems fair. Although you would then have a big argument about who gets what stretch of river. Maybe it's just best for each side to continue to lobby and complain and about the other, which sorta keeps everything in a middle ground.
