The Department of Fish & Wildlife has conducted two Kokanee egg takes on the Little Truckee River, above Stampede Reservoir this season. These two events have resulted in the collection of 1.1 million green eggs. All eggs are currently incubating at the San Joaquin River Hatchery. We anticipate one, maybe two, more take events to reach our egg allotment goal of 1.8 million green eggs. Based on fish counts at the last take event this goal should be achievable with in-state eggs.
Take 1: 09/28/21 - 175,608 eggs
Take 2: 10/05/21 - 944,400 eggs
Total - 1,120,000 eggs

California Inland Fisheries Foundation, Inc., (CIFFI), is a volunteer operated, tax deductible 501 C3 non-profit foundation, incorporated in the State of California, dedicated to the enhancement of freshwater angling opportunities. The cooperative efforts between CIFFI and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and many partners, provide necessary funding to sustain multiple species of fish in California’s lakes and reservoirs.
