Annual Canyon Creek fish plant delayed

OLYMPIA -- The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has delayed the annual planting of hatchery trout in Canyon Creek in Clark and Skamania counties. Traditionally, WDFW plants the creek in time for the June 1 opening of the stream fishing season.

The delay was caused by an unusually deep snowfall which has blocked access to the upper creek where the fish are released. WDFW is planning to release 3,000 catchable rainbow trout into the creek when the roads have been cleared, sometime in the next two to four weeks. Canyon Creek runs into the north fork of the Lewis River and is a popular local fishing area.
