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.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
