New Trout Species In Oregon Waters


There’s a new fish species in town, and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife want you to try your hand in catching some. ODF&W spokesperson Jessica Sall says it's called a "Tiger Trout.” “it's going to be kind of a new species in Oregon water. Tiger trout is a cross between a brown trout and a brook trout. And we're just kind of introducing them in a couple of lakes, one in southwest Oregon and northeast Oregon, in order to see what kind of angling opportunity they will provide to people." Sall says it has an unusual scale pattern; and for the time being, they want anglers just to catch and release the fish. Tiger trout are now in Fish Lake in southwest Oregon and Phillips Reservoir in the northeast. She says more good fishing news is that they have increase the daily bag limit on Diamond Lake from five to eight trout.  You can get more fishing news at the ODF&W  website, we have a link on the KBND links page.
