*Due to the California drought, many of the commercial trout hatcheries that normally produce fish for recreational stocking are closed or out of business. This has placed significant stress on the marketplace resulting in periodic shortages of fish. While OC Parks is working with contractors to obtain trout in this stressed marketplace, this schedule and delivery amounts may be subject to change due to availability.
