California Department of Fish and Game gives the gift of trout to Bay Area fishermen

The California Department of Fish and Game this month is releasing thousands of trout into more than a dozen Bay Area lakes, to the delight of local anglers. Some of the fish weigh as much as 2 pounds, according to the department.

“We want to create opportunities for families to spend quality time together through the time-honored tradition of fishing,” said Scott Wilson, Fish and Game’s acting regional manager.

Merced Lake North in San Francisco, Horseshoe Lake in Alameda County, Bon Tempe Lake in Marin County, Lake Chabot in Solano County and Campbell Perc Pond in Santa Clara County are among the lakes that will be stocked with trout.

“Fishing, like many other outdoor pursuits, helps keep people connected to their natural environment,” Wilson said.
A complete list of Bay Area lakes set to receive trout stock can be found online at www.dfg.ca.gov.
