My quote was from the link above, actually went there from your post, I did note that it was written by an Englishman, so had the potential to be either unbiased research or just rumor picked while he was in the area. I would have guessed that the railroad he referred to was SLSF or some  early defunct system, but hey I know nothing about railroads or Crane.

Then chances are the first stocking was after 1905?

The Frisco ran one or several trains from St. Louis probably as far as Neosho stocking fish at most all creek crossings early on. 
I don’t have any hard data on it. 

I have never seen documentation that any of these trains ran after the Missouri Pacific line was built from Carthage to Diaz Jct. AR.  If you research it, the MP and its wholly own subsidiary, StLIM&S started at each end and met in the middle. No other railroad has operated through or to Crane.


But at any rate, I don’t know when the first documented stocking took place on Crane Creek. I don’t dispute that it may have happened in the 1800’s. I only dispute when it’s stated that railcar stockings took place on Crane Creek prior to 1905.

So.....does this make it OK to shoot kayaks?     Just kidding of course (trying to head off someone losing it over this comment made in jest).

You just haven't had them prepared right.....😂  @BilletHeadprobably has a recipe.😁

I'm good with stocking it White Ribbon style, or just allowing it to return to a smallmouth and sucker fishery like it is supposed to be.   It's going to be 30-50 years before the "shade" returns, and

I browsed the topic and found a ton of great info there... no wonder I pinned it on the Crane Forum.

I just read through that.   

Do I really just tell the same stories over and over, from one year to the next?    My dad used to do that in his later years, and it absolutely drove me crazy.   😳 

No wonder everybody here is sick of my crap.  😂 

Is that dementia or alzheimer's setting in?   Yikes!
