I just moved away from Central California where most of my fishing was for trout in Hume Lake and the surrounding streams. They stock that lake and many others or else there wouldn't be anything to catch. What are your thoughts on this? Stocking, good/bad? Does it promote the sport or spoil it a little bit for you?
I'm by no means an expert, I just like to fish where there is a chance to catch something. Sometimes that means going a few extra miles away from any signs of human traces before my line hits the water.
