Does anyone know when the next trout release will take place at Lake Cachuma? Before Veteran's weekend last year they released trout, will they do it again?

The 10/28/18 fishing report available on the Cachuma site says the next one will be mid-December hopefully. Happy fishing!

They normally plant fish every year about the same month as before. This was the last report of a plant, so I expect sometime between the first two weeks of Nov. You can get more info from the SB County Parks website: https://www.countyofsb.org/parks/cachumafishing.sbc 2017/2018 Trout Plants: In cooperation with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Santa Barbara County Parks was granted a Private Stocking Permit for triploid rainbow trout. On November 9, the first of three 4,000 pound loads made its way to the water. Another load of 4,000 pounds was released on February 15. The third 4,000 pound plant happened early in the morning of Tuesday, April 3, 2018. The trout range in size from half a pound "catchables," to eight pound "trophies".
