What's Up in Bear Valley Springs?
February 1, 2020
January saw a meeting regarding fish planting in our water holes. Several fish were caught in Jack's Hole and released into Four-Island Lake. Currently catfish tend to make up the majority of the population. The advisory committee looked into stocking bass but none were available, but had they been, they would have been $10 for each 4-inch-long fish. The second biggest population of fish were the crappie, followed by a few bass and blue gill.
