The 2020 Kokanee egg take has been completed by the DFW. All eggs were taken from the Little Truckee River, above Stampede Reservoir. They conducted four egg take events this year. All eggs were transported to San Joaquin Fish Hatchery for incubation to eyed stage. At eyed stage, eggs will be portioned between American River and San Joaquin Hatcheries were they will be incubated to hatching and released next spring (2021) as fingerlings.

CIFFI supporters - a heads up, we have reached out to the DFW and the 2020 egg take process is kicking off with placement of the weirs at Stampede. But, due to COVID-19, DFW will not be using any volunteers this year. All egg-take efforts for 2020 will be a DFW affair only. We hope to resume the normal egg-take process in 2021. We will keep you posted as to the 2020 egg-take progress as usual.
We wish to advise CIFFI supporters and sponsors that our fundraising dinner, originally planned for October 24th 2020, has been cancelled, due to COVID-19 restrictions at the state and local levels. Social gatherings the size of our dinner are not allowed.
CIFFI appreciates the support of our members and sponsors and our hope is our regular derby and dinner schedule can resume in 2021. We will keep you informed as we learn the situation at that time. Until then, stay safe, fish as often as you can and we look forward to seeing you in 2021.
