This week the Lahontan National Fish Hatchery Complex successfully stocked 4,654 Lahontan Cutthroat trout into the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe. In partnership with the hatchery, NDOW FLOY tagged 2,000 of these trout with a unique ID and phone number so anglers can report their catch to us. Please call the number on the tag if you catch a tagged fish! This will help us learn more about the Lahontan Cutthroat Trout in Lake Tahoe! See more info about all the agencies that made this project happen in the post below.
