The Almanor Fishing Association, in conjunction with the Chester High School Fish Hatchery Program, are working to be able to plant naturally spawned eggs from Lake Almanor Rainbow Trout back into the lake.
The students will harvest the eggs in the spring, incubate and hatch the eggs at the school's hatchery. The fingerlings will then be planted back into Lake Almanor.
Our Association and the local community have raised the funds to enable Chester High School to purchase a generator and other needed equipment to support the hatchery/lab.
It's well worth the trip to visit the school and see this program in action.
See our 2011 Almanor Fisherman Newsletter - page 9 for the latest news on the limnology program.
