Could Idaho Power's catfish planting be changed to "Trout"? We have had enough catfish...
To whom it concerns,
We appreciate your recommendation to stock Trout in Milner Reservoir; however, water temperatures are typically unsuitable for rainbow trout survival in the Milner Reservoir pool. Stocked trout that pass through the Minidoka Dam do not persist much downstream. We have documented water temperatures that are not suitable for rainbow trout. If you haven't tried it yet, consider fishing the Minidoka bypass on the South Side. There is good access and word has it some great trout fishing.
