Efforts limit invaders in Diamond Lake

Invaders harm trout

ODFW stocked Diamond Lake with two types of predator fish to eat tui chub and golden shiners, which have historically deteriorated water quality and harmed populations of rainbow trout.

Restoration & Enhancement dollars have been instrumental in ongoing monitoring efforts, as well as paying for some of the treatments that have helped remove illegally introduced fish.
