Two such isolated native species from dried-up waterways have been living in government hatcheries since last year, snacking on flies that rangers catch in bug-zappers for them, Lehr said, and waiting for wetter times.

The fish face death because Caples Lake is being lowered for emergency repairs to the dam's outlet gates, and the water could freeze solid this winter, said Stafford Lehr, a senior environmental scientist for the Department of Fish and Game."We had the potential for a total fish kill during the winter," Lehr said.

The fish face death because Caples Lake is being lowered for emergency repairs to the dam's outlet gates, and the water could freeze solid this winter, said Stafford Lehr, a senior environmental scientist for the Department of Fish and Game."We had the potential for a total fish kill during the winter," Lehr said.The lake is beloved by anglers because it is stunningly beautiful, and some of the trout live in the lake for years, allowing them to grow large.Fish 18 to 20 inches long are caught frequently.The lake also contains some 20-year-old fish that reach 3 feet in length, Lehr said.

Lehr said they are using three methods to catch the fish:» Three electro-shock boats that can send a charge 8 or 10 feet deep.Once stunned, a fish turns belly up, so it can be netted and placed in he boat's tank, where it revives.» Using gill nets and trammel nets, which are like walls of netting stretched from the lake surface to its bottom.Fish get caught in the nets and will die unless the nets are checked every few hours.» Using hoop nets, sort of a one-way trap that allows a fish to swim in but not out.Once enough fish accumulate in the holding pens, then they are transferred to a tank truck for the trip to Silver Lake.Lehr said he expected the fishing to improve late Tuesday and again early today.
