The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) has been stocking Atlantic salmon for sport fishing since 1958. But no longer.

“Into the future, ODFW will focus on stocking Hosmer Lake with cutthroat trout,” reports the Bend Bulletin.

A lot of people probably had no idea the lake’s been stocked with Atlantic salmon for that long. But that’s over now, and so probably is the Atlantic salmon program at the Wizard Falls Hatchery.
