Trout on tour/Maria and 29 others


Q: And what do we have here? A: Just about 11 or 13 of the 800-some trout that were introduced into Echo Park Lake this morning by a worker for the wildlife government agency that handles the biweekly stockings of the lake. In they go!


I was at the lake with Christine Peters and B.J. Hollifield (and also Dominic Ehrler and Maria and CBS's Steve Hartman and Les Rose -- more on this after the jump). We watched as net-full after net-full of fairly big trout splashed into the filthy water. The rule at the lake is catch-and-release. But it's an open secret that many people keep the trout they pull out. Birds, like the great herons and cormorants, eat many of the others.

"We come again in two weeks. By then almost all of these will be gone," the net guy explained. He said that when the lake is drained the remaining fish will be fished out and relocated, possibly to MacArthur Park or some other public lake. Trout on tour.
