I've caught several over the years. They seem to flourish there. Do you think it would be worthwhile for TPWD to stock the lake?

Yes, But as of now they will not stock them.

Best thing to do is for people to keep bringing them down from Texoma and self stocking

I think, because smallmouth are more susceptible to the algae problem, TPWD has given up stocking smallies in the Brazos River lakes.

And I think stocking on Ray Roberts would be great. Since they are already in there and appear to be thriving, I'd love to see a healthy stocking.

They used to stock walleye and tiger muskie in some lakes but have learned where not to waste money

I thought they stopped stocking them because they kept cross breeding with the guadalupe bass.

The stopped because of Golden Algae.. They also said until they figured out what cause it there would be no more stocking of smallmouth.. Whitney used to as good as it got before the fish kill. Oh and yes it is illegal to transport a fish caught at one lake and put it into another lake.

I don't think Golden Algae picks and chooses what fish it kills, cut off oxygen to any fish and they die. Prove me wrong.

Definitely harder on Spotted and Smallmouth Bass than Largemouth.
