The Division of Wildlife Resources has been busy stocking waters throughout the Uintah Basin with all kinds of fish but neighboring Strawberry Reservoir is the focus this week. DWR biologists started stocking the reservoir on Monday, taking fish out onto the reservoir in barges and releasing them throughout the lake. In all, there will be approximately 250,000 cutthroat trout delivered to Strawberry as their new home. Biologists report that the fish are larger this year, averaging around 10 inches long. Many waters are being stocked with larger fish this year after it was determined to improve survival rates and quality. Strawberry Reservoir is a stop for many anglers from the Uintah Basin that enjoy fishing for cutthroats and rainbow trout as well as kokanee salmon. Biologists expect to be done stocking Strawberry Reservoir on Thursday.
