Extra trout released for spring break anglers
March 24, 2010


CORVALLIS, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife released extra trout in two Willamette Valley lakes this week to increase fishing opportunities for area youths during their spring break holiday.

“With great weather this is an excellent opportunity to get out and take your family fishing,” said Karen Hans, assistant district fish biologist for ODFW’s South Willamette Watershed.

The department released a total of 1,600 fish ranging in size from eight inches to more than one pound into Waverly and Timber lakes.

Waverly Lake is a five-acre lake located north of Albany along Hwy. 99E. Timber Linn Lake is an 11-acre lake located in Albany City Park.

“These are excellent family fishing areas with plenty of bank space, park facilities, disabled access and parking,” said Hans.

The trout stocking program is one of ODFW’s most popular activities. Each year the agency releases more than 1.2 million trout at 96 sites around the Northwest Region.

The program is financed through the sale of fishing licenses.
