Good deal but only if after a careful check of fishing regulations. Many states do not allow this at all while others such as Washington regulate state managed waters. Unfortunately with far too many scientists they do not consider the motivation factors of such a restocking effort nor the motivation and recreation for the kids that participate in the effort or afterwards, just catchign fish. When we were kids back in Ohio at least once a year a fwe fishing trips were made restocking ponds and stream stretches. A heck of a lot better activity for kids over watching tv! Good article!
