Oregon anglers transfer bass throughout state

The Central Oregon Bass Club participated in an electroshock and fish transfer from Davis Lake to other multiple lakes throughout the state in 2011. Conducted by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists, this is the fifth annual survey that the COBC has taken part in.

On multiple nights, the waters were electroshocked, allowing the volunteers to collect 1,500 fish in net pens. On the last day the fish were divided into shares for each lake. Club members helped drive stocking trucks to Davis Lake and to Prineville Reservoir, delivering 150 adult largemouth bass to other members with release boats. More than 140 hours were donated during the project. 

Affected bodies of water include Prineville Reservoir, Lost Creek Reservoir, Willow Creek Reservoir, McKay Reservoir, Fireman's Pond, Prineville Kids Pond, Madras Pond and Bend Pine Nursery Pond.
