I don't really have a problem with TPWD making lake fork there crown jewel or favorite lake but I do think they should spread the wealth a little and restock some of the other lakes on a regular basis I think they would be better for it maybe take some pressure off of fork.
This. In my opinion, the best way to help Fork regain some of its past glory is to figure out how to take some of the pressure off, and I think the best way to do that without killing a lot of the local businesses is to focus more stocking energy on other lakes. Maybe some metro lakes that aren't necessarily known for big time bass fishing or have been forgotten about like Hubbard, Chambers, Cooper, Lavon, etc. Let some of the metro lakes start kicking out 25 lb stringers on a regular basis and I think the pressure problem on Fork will take care of itself.
As for the local businesses, people will still come from long distances to fish Fork because it is Fork, and they're the ones that really spend money there. I know you can't discount the money from the metroplex, but speaking for myself only, I live there, and never go to Fork anymore strictly due to the pressure. It's a balancing act, but Fork is number 1 in kicking out big bass for a reason, and I firmly believe that if you take some of the pressure off, it will heal itself.
