Helicopter Fish Stocking

Every other year, Oregon biologists dangle a device below a helicopter and drop young fish into high mountain lakes for the pleasure of Cascade anglers. Columbia Basin Helicopters, Inc. has taken part and helped in this bi-yearly process. The state takes precautions to sterilize many of the fish because most of the fish planted in Oregon lakes are not native to the region.
