Helicopters to drop 350,000 trout into Oregon’s high mountain lakes

The term ‘flying fish’ will take on new meaning this week at Oregon’s high mountain lakes.

Officials are planning to drop more than 350,000 fingerling trout from helicopters into hundreds of backcountry lakes across Oregon’s mountains.

The goal is to offer fishing opportunities to those willing to venture into the backcounty, officials said.

Spots that will receive a drop of fish near Salem include numerous lakes in the Cascade Range, including in the Mount Jefferson, Mount Washington and Three Sisters wilderness areas.
