Aerial Fish Stocking

OPB | Nov. 8, 2012 8:30 p.m.

Every other year, Oregon biologists dangle a device below a helicopter and drop young fish into high mountain lakes for the pleasure of Cascade anglers. The state takes precautions to sterilize many of the fish because most of the fish planted in Oregon lakes are not native to the region.
