Trout Released Into Melones

Sponsored by:

Angels Camp, CA — 1,000 fish were released into New Melones Reservoir Wednesday thanks to Kokanee Power.

There were 500 of each Rainbow and German Brown Trout weighing from two to three pounds.

Kokanee Power keeps two trout pens at the marina and when the fish are big enough they are released into the reservoir.

The non-profit group is building bigger pens this summer and plans to start the process again this winter. Other pens are kept at Lake Shasta and Collins Lake.
