Wondering if Mtn. Home Reservoir going to be stocked in 2014?
We have chosen to not stock Mt. Home Reservoir during 2014. From recent tagging studies, we have learned that very few rainbow trout return to anglers creels during moderate to poor water years. Catchable rainbow trout are very expensive to raise and stock. Our agency has to be very efficient in allocating these resources. As you know, reservoir storage levels were very low this spring. Also, there was a relative lack of low-elevation snow limiting the possibility of re-fill. As soon as water levels/amounts improve, we will resume stocking.
