The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODF & W) just dropped almost 350,000 fish trout to roughly 500 high lakes throughout the Cascade Range. ODF & W spokesman Rhine Messmer says it can be very rewarding after a long hike to catch some nice trout and be able to cook them up for dinner, right out on the lake.  It gives people a chance to have a fairly pristine fishing experience they wouldn't otherwise have: “But if we didn't stock them,  there are some lakes that maintain themselves through natural re-production, mainly brook trout, but a few have rainbow trout. But if you have rainbow trout so we generally don't stock those lakes because it doesn't make much sense if they are already self-reproducing; but the majority of the lakes that were fish-less and needed stocking. The fish would die out within a few years." Rhine says while its really good fishing, lots of snow this year makes it trickier to access some high lakes, so be pre-pared.
