Why doesn't KDWP stock certian fish in my favorite lake?

KDWP raises and stocks certain species of fish in water bodies around the state according to a stocking plan based on annual fish sampling data and availability of suitable habitat.  Stocking is a fisheries management tool that must be used correctly, be cost effective, and should not disrupt other favorable aquatic species to be beneficial.
