This time the stocking is triploids...next time it might be a variety of whirling disease-resistant trout that will interbreed with the current population and pass whirling disease-resistance genetics into the rest of the population; even though whirling disease is not currently a problem at the Ferry, it could potentially become one in the future.
For this and many other reasons, I urge everyone to support this stocking for the Lees Ferry fishery.
If the stocking is sterile fish, and just in the walk-in area, then I don't have a problem with it and I am going to post another comment on the game & fish site saying so.
