Adding fish to Banks Lake

POWER gets ready to release 150,000 rainbow trout.

One of the reasons Banks Lake is one of the best fishing spots in the state has to do with volunteers, and a little known group called POWER, the Promoters of Widlife and Environmental Resources.

The group raises young fish in net pens in Electric City each year, releasing them into the lake.

The video clip below is of them getting ready to release 150,000 rainbow trout today, Saturday, June 6, 2015, when they had a little help from five members of the Wenatchee Fishermen’s club.
