|Volunteers needed for CDFW Wild Trout Population Estimate!
California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and California Trout
(CalTrout) are collaborating to obtain a wild trout population estimate
via angling in the upper section of the Hat Creek Wild Trout Area (WTA).
This rare hands-on opportunity will task volunteers with catching,
marking (clipping the adipose fin with scissors), measuring, and
recapturing as many trout as possible from the two-day survey event.|
A trout population estimate will be used by fishery biologists to evaluate trends over time and help make sound management decisions.
Register Here to volunteer for one or both of the Saturday Surveys. Participation in both days encouraged. Volunteers must be proficient anglers, able to fish and collect data independently. Intermediate to advanced angling requested.
Marking Day = April 4, 2020 (Saturday) from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm Recapture Day = April 18, 2020 (Saturday) from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm This is a RAIN OR SHINE event!
