In addition, DFG is finding, through some of its surveys, that past fish stocking has helped establish self-sustain- ing spawning populations which no longer require stock- ing to maintain them. At this time, the "roadside" lakes above 4,000 feet, which were regularly stocked with catchable trout, will continue to be stocked as in the past, but will also be evaluated. "Our goal is to manage fish and wildlife resources of California to maintain or restore native species biodi- versity and habitat quality, and also provide recreational opportunities," Jacobs said. Over the last 10 years, the DFG has reduced fingerling fish stocking in many central and southern Sierra high mountain lakes, with little loss of angling opportunities. DFG's evaluations and adjust- ments of fingerling stocking have been designed to prevent further declines of amphib- ians, especially the mountain yellow-legged frog, and to improve the quality of the fish- ing. "In order to maintain our commitment as the stewards of all fish and wildlife resources throughout California, we must be willing to alter management practices to provide a balance between native species preservation and recreational fishing opportunities as new scientific evidence points us towards a better-ioformed direction," Hight said.
