Lake Almanor Receiving 50,000 Trout

Lake Almanor is one of the pristine lakes Northern California anglers dream of fishing at. Located in remote Plumas County, Almanor is an off-the-beaten-path destination that is getting a boost for next season’s trout season courtesy of the Almanor Fishing Association. Here’s some details from the Plumas County News:

That’s all positive because 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 23 and 24, tank trucks from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife started showing up at the boat ramp of Lake Haven Resort to unload 50,000 fertile rainbow trout.

Over 20 AFA members manned the unloading of the trout into a transfer pen, moving them to the holding pens at Hamilton Branch with a pontoon boat and manually moved them into the pens with nets.

Some students from the Feather River College Hatchery Program came up to observe and help out the AFA.

The trout will be housed in the pens, fed daily by more AFA members and ultimately released into Lake Almanor next spring.
