Once the transfer cage reaches the stock cages, the work begins as a group of AFA volunteers scoop the fish up. with nets and distribute them evenly into the fish cages.

The dedicated volunteers will start the daffy feeding schedule immediately and will continue for the next six months with a plan to release the trout sometime in April 2018. The fish-rearing program was started in 1985 as an idea from Jim Pleau and Ruben Chavez, who were co-owners of the former Lassen View Resort. They started with a two-pen test set-up and it has grown to the current 10-pen facility.
