California Restocking Cleveland Forest Streams

December 5, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

Depleted by drought and fire, the trout of the Cleveland National Forest streams are replenished by state agencies and local volunteers, despite objections from Forest managers. “Lugging buckets fixed with battery-powered aerators, they carried wiggly trout to pools at Boulder and Cottonwood creeks. Flashing as fast as fireworks, the trout disappeared under rocks and grassy stream banks.” Terry Rodgers on MercedSearch.com.
