You would have to think that will effect a lot of businesses in the Lake area. I don't fish the lake so no big deal to me. I do fish the rivers and streams so if it means more fish for them thats good for me! Knee Deep Club has to be flipping out!
It's an undeniable fact that stocking Lake Hopatcong with trout is a money maker for the state. To stop stocking trout in LH would be a negative economic impact to F&W coffers not to mention surrounding lake businesses. This would be a bad move.
