On Oct. 9, aquatics biologists sampled the lake with gillnets. They found that tiger trout outnumbered cutthroat trout 10 to 1. The largest tiger weighed 4.5 pounds and the largest cutthroat measured 17 inches. This past spring, a number of 3-inch kokanee salmon were introduced. Surprisingly, some have already grown to length up to 10 inches. The population of redside shiners, an important bait fish, is healthy. Biologists netted 70 redside shiners, which averaged 3 to four inches in length. No evidence of quagga mussels was found for the third year in a row. Next year, the lake's infested status will likely be downgraded.
