In years such as 1957, large numbers of young channel catfish could be collected and used to stock new ponds and lakes. So doing would not affect the numbers of _adults_ produced in the stream, and, if enough young could be removed, those remaining in the streams might grow faster.
Suckers and carp are abundant in the two rivers and mostly are unused at present, because current regulations preclude the use of methods effective for the capture of these species.
The investigation here reported on was supported jointly by the Kansas Forestry, Fish and Game Commission and the State Biological Survey of Kansas.
