Blackrock Fish Hatchery broodstock, those big trout used for spawning to propagate future generations, are being released in the Lower Owens River.
This week marked the second large-scale release of the hatcheryâ€™s broodstock in as many months, and the Department of Fish and Wildlife said there is going to be at least one more release in the coming month.
