Fans of fishing Rufus Woods Reservoir will be pleased to learn about a recent plant of triploid rainbow trout. The Colville Fish and Wildlife Department has announced that they are releasing over 15,000 fish, with an average of weight of 1.5 pounds. The fish are to be released on Thursday of this week. Typically, the release sites are at Seatons Grove at the top end of the reservoir and from the State Park, which is just above Chief Joseph Dam near Bridgeport. This will certainly improve catches for both bank and boat anglers. Those who fish Rufus Woods are reminded that all of the trout released into the reservoir are provided by the Colville Tribe. The Colville Tribe also said that they are now going to release trout into the lakes within the reservation boundaries. Some of the fish being released are at least the size of those going into Rufus Woods and some of them will be larger. Twin Lakes, near Inchelium and Buffalo Lake are a couple of the lakes that allow non-tribal members to fish, and often receive some whopper triploids each spring. Further releases of trout are planned through the months of March and April.
