LAKE JENNINGS TO STOCK "TROPHY" TROUT STARTING NOV. 1

 

October 22, 2013 (Lake Jennings) – Ten-year-old Doug Utz stood with a smile beaming across his face and his arms spread the length of a nine-pound Rainbow trout.  The young fisherman was presenting his catch for a photo to commit the moment to history.

That was many years ago, however, and such catches have since been impossible at Lake Jennings in San Diego’s East County.  Rangers instead have been stocking higher numbers of smaller trout to help anglers bag their limits of five each.

According to Head Ranger David Acevedo, that philosophy and practice are coming to an end.  For this trout season, beginning Nov. 1, Acevedo said up to 3,000 pounds of trout will be stocked just before opening day with weekly 1,000-pound plantings thereafter.

SAVING WILD RAINBOW TROUT: CRITICAL BOULDER CREEK ACQUISITION COMPLETED TO LAUNCH PROJECT

November 3, 2012 (San Diego) – It is a surprise to many that wild rainbow trout still exist in San Diego County. One place they do is on Boulder Creek, at the foot of the towering Cuyamaca Peak in East County. 

The San Diego River Park Foundation, in partnership with San Diego Fly Fishers and other organizations supporting wild trout conservation, has launched a project to ensure the survival of the wild trout on Boulder Creek, one of two known creeks in the San Diego River Watershed which support the trout.
