    Lovs, thanks for your reply. I wish that DFW would read these first hand experiences. Interestingly, I just received an e-mail from CDFW titled, Angler Update and tried to open the referenced links, Fishing Planting Schedule, it would not open, it seems that they have top to bottom failure over there. Go figure. Whalonem

    CC, your dead on, for "trout" close the dam thing and move that portion of the operation to a higher elevation with colder water. When the cold pool of Folsom lake warms up in these drought years and the Nimbus facility does not have the chilling equipment to keep the water temp down, guess what happens, fish die, brood stock are lost and millions of $ are wasted. Like you said CC, "American river hatchery is screwed up" and our fishing license keep going up. Whalonem

    I wish those Alper trout were still roaming around there.

    CC, they maybe a completely different fish than those from Nimbus. Also, if they are Triploids they put on weight twice as fast as regular hatchery grown rainbows. In addition the water temp in the eastern Sierras hatcheries are a lot colder and tend to produce higher quality fish. I'm not to sure about the Food and its cost, however, the person I spoke with from Nimbus indicated that their food budget could not afford higher quality food which would put on weight much faster.

    I will believe this when I start catching them again!!!!! The reason they plant fingerlings is because they don't have sufficient funds to purchase quality food in the hatchery. Got this directly from the Nimbus Staff. Also, if the fingerlings are smaller than the chubs guess who gets devoured first. Another smart move on DFW part.
