All of the trout pens that Kokanee Power supports were planted in the fall. This includes pens at Shasta (6), New Melones, Collins (6), Lewiston (3), and Lake Siskiyou (3). Your membership, derby, and banquet proceeds contribute to the trout pen food purchase that Kokanee Power buys in bulk, at more than $10K a year. This year we were very grateful that several people contributed to purchase the food to help offset the costs. Thank you to each lake that stepped up to help us out.
At Shasta Lake, there were 6 pens planted, 4 with Brown Trout and 2 with Rainbows. It’s great to see overall cooperation with the DFW, Forest Service and the local resort owners taking care of feeding duties to fatten up the fish before their release in the Spring.
