CDFW begins trout removal at Gold Lake

Saturday, July 4, 2015 — State biologists began removing trout from Gold Lake in the Bucks Lake Wilderness last week.
    Kevin Thomas, a California Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist who is overseeing the project, said about 120 brook trout were removed with gill nets in the first two days.
    The CDFW plans to spend the next two summers pulling trout out of the small alpine lake northwest of Meadow Valley. The biologists’ goal is to eradicate the lake’s trout population in hope the endangered mountain yellow-legged frog will repopulate the area.
    Trout, which CDFW does not consider native to the lake, are one of the tiny amphibian’s main predators.
