Monty Currier, CF&W’s officer in charge of hatcheries, has extended an invitation to STFF’s members to fish the trout ponds at the Mt Shasta Hatchery on Friday August 23rd stating at 9AM.
The ground rules are as follows: You may use any fishing technique, live bait, power bait fly, streamer, etc that you choose. You must keep any fish that you land. You will be advised of the number of fish you can keep when you arrive at the hatchery.
These ponds are holding the remaining trout from the kids fishing days….so there is a variety of sizes including trout that are over 6/7 lbs.
No reservations are required…just show up at 9AM with your gear and some type of stringer. Finally, all fish must be removed from the premises…no cleaning of fish is allowed at the hatchery
