Alex Townsend, our local CPW aquatic biologist, provided an update on CPW’s discontinuation of stocking fin clipped Gunnison River Rainbows in the Arkansas River. He also discussed some ideas for CPC volunteer projects at Twin Lakes involving Lake Trout; the stocking of Virginia Lake (off Hagerman Pass); and fish monitoring, electrofishing and stocking throughout the Grape Creek drainage this year. This drainage suffered damage in a 2018 flood and needs some work to help the fishery recover.
