    Sure talk to RKMM on here and she'll tell you where to get a quote on how much to pony up for the 1st stock. It's not cheap and it doesn't necessarily mean good or bad things. The Wipers in Jennings have done about nothing for that place. I've heard of like 2 being caught.

    My thinking is more forage based . Fish that won't compete directly with bass.

    Yup, look at Barrett.... Added some forage and the fish now thrive! Bigger and better than ever before. Its also more than that though, just because you add something doesn't mean the carrying capacity hasn't been exceeded. Environments have limitations. All we can do is monitor them and keep them clean as best we can while nature takes it's course.

    Freshwater Sculpin, Shad and other smaller Finfish are just as much a part of an ecosystem as the vegetation they live in. It's called food "chain" for a reason. They are all linked together. Adding more species doesn't make things more appealing to kids and doesn't make lakes fish better.

    Not sure about stocking fish species that are not already present, you would probably need to put in the request first and see if it gets approved.

    And if you are going to do that, stock smallmouth. Fun as heck to catch and twice as strong as a largemouth.

    Few years back I remember John Kerr catching what I believe to be a yellow perch at El Cap. Going to look for a link to that. I was mistaking, it's a log perch not a yellow perch. Still rare in SD to see them.


    Found it. http://sdfish.com/forums/posts/68195/

    I think smallies would survive in a lot of our lakes if they stock bigger sized fish instead of fingerlings

    I used to live near there, drove me crazy to look at those lakes :p

    One is San Andreas Lake (the fault runs right underneath the dam; they didn't know that when they built it) and the other is Crystal Springs. I read somewhere that Crystal Springs was the first lake in CA to be stocked with LMB. You can actually drive across it at almost surface level on Highway 92 west of 280.

    I've heard that people have successfully snuck in and fished, but I've also heard that enforcement is also rigorous. Plus, there are mountain lions in those hills; not sure I'd want to be roaming around there at night lol.

    Definitely agree! If you want to experience the involvement of a "typical" parent, volunteer to coach a sports team and you'll see how hard it is to get the parents involved.

    I found that they would get involved if you failed to recognize the untapped potential in their special child, and failed to start said child in the position to which they were born to play!

    compared to the movies its definitely cheaper....but for me, i have to work a ton to just support the fam..id rather take em fishing, but the park is free and open anytime...i may only have a couple hours to go and the free lakes arent that close so my options are murray..or the river...again if murray had an hourly rate or something it would be worth it...
