Program 1

The purpose of the fish rearing program is to raise fish in cages in Lake Almanor to be released into the lake and to promote and maintain the fishing in the lake. The program was established in 1985 in the Hamilton Branch area by two local fishermen, Jim Pleau and Reuben Chavez with the assistance of Ron DeCoto, a biologist with the Department of Fish & Game (DFG). The program was started with two nylon net pens which were located at Lassen View Resort owned by Jim and Reuben. The DFG provided the fish via hatcheries to rear during the winter months. The DFG also provided food to feed the fish, acquired the necessary permit from PG&E to have the nets in the waters of Lake Almanor and took responsibility for maintenance of the cashes. The cage program was very successful and has since developed into using aluminum cages. AFA has taken over the program of maintaining the cages, feeding the fish through the winter months and releasing the fish in the Spring of each year.
