Default A Step Further.. What if we stocked Bugs?

My home water is a small but dynamic tail-water that has an excellent population of wild brown trout and a FEW really nice hatches. Where I live, I am pretty lucky to have such great water so close, but the vast majority of fish are pretty small. I often find myself wishing they were just a little bigger (I imagine a lot of us do this).

This tail-water was created in my lifetime, stocked, and established a wild population of browns. SO we created a exotic environment, stocked it with an exotic species of fish.... Why not go one step further and stock it with the insects?

Has anyone ever heard of the idea of stocking insects? I mean why not?

I think about possible problems of invasives, carrying capacity, etc, etc and think we have done so much already why not?

Thoughts?
