General Comments

Recent rains have resulted in removal of the fish salvage condition at Hain State Fishing Lake.

Recent rain has resulted in a nearly full lake again.  Decaying vegetation in newly filled waters prevents adequate dissolved oxygen levels to sustain fish.  When water conditions improve and fish become available, fish stocking will commence.  While mid summer is not typically when many fish are available through our fish culture section, efforts to locate and stock largemouth bass, bluegill, and channel catfish are ongoing.
