Fall trout stocking was delayed due to a disruption in the supply chain.
In early 2020, multiple California trout hatcheries were infected with Lactococcus garvieae, a bacterial outbreak similar to streptococcus. California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CADFW) was forced to euthanize millions of trout, which will impact inland fishing for many years.
OC Parks has been working with our lake management contractor to secure necessary permits and import Rainbow Trout from a hatchery located in Idaho. The first trout stockings are anticipated to take place the week of Dec. 7-11. The full stocking schedule will be posted as soon as it is finalized.
