Next year's trout dinner


POWER members Jim Depew, left, and Doug Patrick guide a stream of 50,000 fingerling rainbow trout into net pens Tuesday on Banks Lake at Electric City. Delivered by the Washington State Fish & Wildlife Department, the trout came from the Columbia Basin Hatchery in Moses Lake. The fish were from 4-5 inches long, and at their release date in March will be about 10 inches. The group will receive another 100,000 rainbows today (Wednesday). The Promoters of Wildlife and Environmental Resources will start feeding another 150,000 rainbows next March. -- Roger S. Lucas photo
