Get Out There And Catch Your Christmas Rainbows
This is a Great time to take the kids to Contra Loma Reservoir in Antioch ! Or maybe just a drive out there by yourself for a few and cast out a line...However you decide to,,this is a good time to go and get yourself a nice big fresh Christmas Rainbow Trout... The week before Christmas, the East Bay Regional Park District planted an additional 4,000 pounds of extra large rainbow trout at Lake Del Valle in Livermore, Quarry Lakes in Fremont, Shadow Cliffs in Pleasanton, Contra Loma in Antioch and Lake Temescal in Oakland. According to the Park District Fisheries Program Manager, Pete Alexander, this plant from the Desert Springs Trout Farm in Oregon contains a wonderful strain of rainbow trout with bright colors, pink meat and great fighting ability. The trout will range from 1.5 to 4.5 pounds each. In addition to these trout, Shadow Cliffs, Quarry Lakes and Temescal will be receiving rainbow trout from the California Dept. of Fish & Game Urban Fishing Program.
