Coho expected to be stocked
- It appears Coho salmon smolts will likely be planted in Lake Oroville within the next two weeks or so, assuming they test disease free to the satisfaction of State Fish and Game.
Eric See, a biologist with the California Department of Water Resources, said at Friday's Oroville Recreation Advisory Committee meeting about 50,000 to 60,000 Coho smolts could be put into the lake, if there is enough money to pay for that number.
He said California's Department of Fish and Game will examine the fish when they come to the state line as is its policy. The tests will take 30 minutes to an hour, and hopefully they will be sent on their way to Oroville.
