  White Pines Lake and Angels Creek was planted the week of 6/24/2018. Unfortunately a flash flood destroyed  the Moccasin Hatchery. I have been in touch with the Fish and Wildlife Department and was told that we would be receiving our fish this year from the American River Hatchery and The San Joaquin Hatchery near Fresno. I have been told that we will be receiving a increase in our plants but not as frequent due to logistics. Feel free to contact our DFW representative, Ben Ewing. His contact number is 1-530-906-3934.

Spicer has been just good fishing since the weather has turned warmer the fish have moved deeper.
