Trout Returning

The popular trout lake gets its fish tomorrow.

"PORTOLA – Thousands of Eagle Lake trout are in line for new homes Friday in Lake Davis when the California Department of Fish and Game begins to make good on its promise to plant 11 tons of trout in the Plumas County reservoir.

"Among the trout scheduled for release by hatchery trucks are 3,000 up-to-13-pound trophy trout that will be netted by hand and placed in the water at Honker Cove, said Randy Kelly, the department's pike project manager.

"The fish releases are part of a two-day restocking that will culminate Saturday, when anglers and the local community will celebrate the return of Lake Davis as a world-class trout fishery."
