Fishing has been great at Lafayette Reservoir
by Lafayette Reservoir Staff
The last plant at Lafayette Reservoir was on April 18th for 200lbs of lightening trout, and 800 lbs of rainbow trout from Mt. Lassen. Our next trout plant is scheduled for the week of April 28th for 2,000 lbs of trout from fish and game. Our grand total of trout plants for the season is 28,250 lbs. Fishing has been great at the reservoir!! Fisherman on boats and on the shore seem to be having about the same amount of success.
