As far as stocking reform I would say there are people contacting their elected reps right now telling them the financial waste and ecological harms of the trout hatchery program statewide are unacceptable . I think its as simple as join them in reaching out. Also contacting governor through his website is another avenue if your serious about getting something done.
Pick any or all of the following issues
Hatchery expenses> revenues from license sales, refusal to **** sown hatcheries/cut trout as PSU audit recommended, $27.5 million dollar tax payer bailout to fix their hatcheries in 2020 with the GG2 Grant funds, jacking up licenses to cover trout hatchery program and pricing people out of fishing.
Can mention any of the ecological harms i
mentioned in my article plus hellbenders and concerns about log perch, darters, and other species.
Disjointed habitat improvements won't save Pennsylvania's brook trout. We need watershed-wide management, and we need to stop stocking invasive species.
You will see this topic on the news soon as well if you live in south central PA area
…good time to call your elected officials and tell them you want stocking reform and a PFBC that doesn’t ignore fisheries science succeeding in neighboring states.
