Goose Lake stocked with cutthroat trout
Monday, July 23, 2012
CARSON — Goose Lake in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest was planted on Monday with 2,000 cutthroat trout.
Normally, the cutthroat are planted in the fall, but due to construction at Skamania Hatchery the fish needed to be stocked early, said John Weinheimer, a Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist.
The stocking during the fall months will resume in 2013.
Goose Lake is 53 acres on Carson-Guler road No. 60. It has a boat ramp and $5 day-use fee. Petroleum-powered motors are not allowed in the lake.
