On May 4th Vernonia Lake will host a family fishing event.  Ahead of that event, Oregon Department of  Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) will provide the scheduled   trout stocking of 2500 fish which will occur late next week.

In addition ODFW have been allotted an additional 1000 trout that are surplus from Salmon River Hatchery. They also have about 1000 more fish coming from some fish purchased for special events, including some larger and trophy size fish.

All total there will be about 2000 additional fish in Vernonia Lake above what is on the stocking schedule. According to ODFW the additional fish will also be stocked late next week.
