The no stocking saga continues ...
Feb 28th, 2010, 10:51am
 
The DFG's fish planting program is still not settled. While waters like the Kern River are back to being stocked many waters will remain or become no stock waters. It seems one of the strong factors for making decisions on stock or no-stock is the waters contact with endangered Steelhead. This means, "Lake Cachuma, Lake Casitas, Lake Piru, Castaic Lagoon, Piru Creek, Bouquet Canyon Creek and all the forks of the San Gabriel River drain directly into historic steelhead drainages and will not be planted in the near future." I feel this also means that the Santa Ynez River above Cachuma will not be receiving plants.
 
Other factors including the effect of planted trout on native species other than trout or steelhead are still being evaluated in some areas and may result in no stocking status of other waters including some urban lakes.
 
One of the possibilities that will be proposed by the DFG will be the use of Triploid Trout for stocking sensitive waters. While Triploid fish have been altered genetically by applying high pressure or heat to the eggs rendering the resultant hatched fish sterile, most scientists will not claim this to be 100% effective. Triploid trout generally grow large and fat and are commonly stocked in the pay to fish lakes. The State of California classifies these fish differently from normal trout in State records.
 
Here's an article from the Daily News:

Can anyone tell me how the can dump 4000 pounds of Caliveras Trout into Cachuma and say they are not planting trout?  I read this in Western Outdoor News form chart in the same issue that headlines the blocked trout plants for the same.  LEW

Simple Lew, The State of California, DFG is in litigation over the stocking issue and the one acting under court order. They are not stocking Cachuma. No one has specifically told the County of Santa Barbara to halt stocking, so they stocked just as they have done in the past.  
 
This is just an example of how inadequate our whole legal system is. It further shows how Santa Barbara County is not concerned with expert opinions, legal rulings regarding stocking and endangered species. They have demonstrated their ignorance and belief they can get away with it because they are Santa Barbara County. It's just another arrogant and irresponsible act.
