soldiers meadow reservoir


since IDFG poisoned all the fish in soldiers meadows, is there any plan at all plant crappie back in the reservoir?...the only reason i went to soldiers meadow was to catch good eating crappie and would like to continue fishing there and so would alot of other poeple I know.... and please if your not going to stock crappie, please put something in there besides trout.


This winter and spring we held public meetings, sent out e-mails (over 800) and posted notices in the newspaper to get input on which fish people would like to see the reservoir managed for in the future.  Based on public response we have decided to manage Soldiers Meadow Resrvoir for Kokanee.  This spring we stocked fingerling Kokanee into the reservoir, and by 2016 these fish should be big enough to provide a fishery.  We will also stock a limited number of sterile rainbow trout to provide some shore fishing oppotunities.

If you have further questions, feel free to give me a call.
