So yesterday I had a stellar day on a C&R stream. I was catching multiple fish in the same pool that I would have expected to be more of a one an done due to spooked fish. When I got home I realized that it had been stocked a couple of weeks ago which is probably why I had such a good day. It got me thinking.... Normally this stream gets a fair amount of pressure and the fish tend to be more reluctant to take anything that floats by. But, with stockers, they are not use to the angling pressure so a less than perfect drift may be good enough. So are stocked fish more representative of fishing streams that are less pressured? I feel that they are but curious of others opinions.
