On Thursday, April 16, the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC released 1,000 Rainbow Trout into Deer Lake and 1,500 Rainbow Trout into Hicks Lake.

The Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC was created in 2003 as a private, not-for-profit organization, funded largely through freshwater fishing licence revenues. The Society works in partnership with Provincial fisheries managers to deliver fish stocking programs that support 50 percent of all fishing in B.C. lakes, releasing between six and eight million fish annually. It also operates fish culture services for sturgeon recovery programs, and various initiatives to increase angling participation. Through these programs, the Society is working to ensure that BC has the most accessible, enjoyable and sustainable freshwater fishing in North America.
