Lake Casitas is a little fishier than it was a week ago, thanks to the April 10 arrival of approximately 2,800 trout. The fish were delivered to their new residence by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (DFW). It was the state's first fish planting in Lake Casitas since January 2010.
"We had no idea when it was going to happen," said Ron Merckling, water conservation and public affairs manager for the Casitas Municipal Water District, "but we're happy it finally did happen."
