Department of Fish and Game Stocks Bass Lake With 5,000 Pounds of Trout on November 16, 2012


Collaborative effort with PG&E plays key role in timely retrofit project


The Department of Fish of Game (DFG) will plant 5,000 pounds of rainbow trout at Bass Lake at Ducey’s Ramp on the east side of Bass Lake beginning at 9:00 A.M. on November 16, 2012. The fish stocking caps PG&E’s two–year dam retrofit project completed in cooperation with DFG.

“Working together with outside organizations to reach a common goal where natural resources can be preserved while ensuring public safety needs are met is a win-win to me. I could not be happier with this cooperative effort and outcome,” said Dr. Andy Gordus, DFG Staff Toxicologist.

This is first of several trout stockings planned to enhance fishing opportunities at the lake. DFG will plant another 4,000 pounds of trout in December. Additionally, PG&E will be stocking trophy fish near the Christmas holiday.

Throughout the retrofit, DFG worked closely with PG&E to monitor water quality and ensure fisheries were not impacted. DFG also helped the company develop its own trout stocking plan to help with lost fishing opportunities over the last two years.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (PG&E) seismic retrofit project at Bass Lake started in 2010. The upgrade of the 1,880-foot long, 145-foot high dam improved its ability to withstand earthquakes, brought it up to state and federal dam safety standards and will allow PG&E to maintain reliable power generation.

Bass Lake’s fishing, boating, hiking and other outdoor recreational opportunities draw tens of thousands of visitors each spring and summer.
