Fish Rearing Cage Program - 2018 Year in Review


In October, AFA received 50,000 Shasta Lake, fertile, twelve to the pound Rainbows into our fish pens. This is the first time in years that we have received 50,000 fish and a testament to the commitment of AFA to serve our fishery.

To prepare for this years’ fish delivery, AFA spent over $10,000 repairing pens and installing log booms to protect the repaired pens. LACC provided us with six large cedar logs for the booms and Almanor Anchor installed the boom and welded the pens. After pricing cedar logs and transportation to Hamilton Branch, LACC saved AFA a substantial amount of money. In addition, we were able to secure six cedar logs from LACC residents Jim Kennedy and AFA Board member Robert Gonzalez. A volunteer work party of sixteen men worked alongside timber faller Spike to fall the trees, remove limbs and haul approximately thirty loads of debris to green waste. The work resulted in six more large cedar logs that are currently stored and seasoning at Rec#1. What a testament to AFA, our volunteers and the generosity of the Lake Almanor community.
