You mean like designated streams which are non-hatchery supported - AKA native streams?

Don't know nearly enough about it, but IMO if the streams require unique management efforts then the license fees should cover those. In the case of something like Trap Hill, where smallies, sunfish & suckers are predominant, but there are a few occasional trout, then no. Farther up, on some of the blue lines, then yes. There is a certain amount of overhead required to survey & maintain trout water that is not necessary for other fisheries.

I disagree.

I actually think species like smallmouth bass get neglected in favor of management for species like trout and largemouth bass.

But regardless of management, trout fishermen should not be singled out for purchasing a special license.
