Usually, service providers do not carry a program because it does not net enough viewers. I am actually surprised at how many fishing programs in California are cut. With all the hundreds of thousands of anglers in the state its still not enough to warrant more programming. Best thing to do is write a request to your provider for programing you want. If they get enough requests, they usually will add some.
