Rogue Valley lakes and ponds get more trout

October 5, 2012

CENTRAL POINT, Ore. –During the first two weeks of October, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is stocking Rogue Valley lakes and ponds with nearly 7,000 legal and larger rainbow trout.

Howard Prairie and Applegate reservoirs, Hyatt and Selmac lakes, and Expo and Reinhart Park ponds are all receiving a mix of one-pound trout and catchable trout. Howard Prairie will also get 16,000 fingerlings.

“We’re glad to offer the opportunity for anglers to catch more trout this fall,” said Dan Van Dyke, Rogue District fish biologist.  “The releases provide a great reason for families to get outside and enjoy being on the water.  Crowds are down in fall and winter, but fishing can be great fun during good weather”. 

The trout were purchased from a private hatchery through an allocation of fishing license funds by the Oregon Legislature.
