Re: A Step Further.. What if we stocked Bugs?
As your created fishery matures, the fishing will likely improve, but it could take decades. The waterway itself will continue to develop it's own flora, the banks will develop their plant life, and bugs may follow suit.
It's an interesting proposition, but the logistics of " seeding " insects would be horrendous. Air temperature needed for a hatch, gathering bugs, disbursing them on the stream, etc. Just the fraility of the insects would be a challenge. You might consider consulting your local county agriculture agent, or maybe someone at Trout Unlimited with experience in this area.
On the other hand, imagine how popular a program like this would be, all over the world. Even on this forum we see lakes that are famous for the fat fish they produce. Doing that artificially would be amazing. Keep us posted on your findings.
