The reason Whistle pops up on fishing radar this week is a "Father's Day" plant of 300 triploid rainbow trout, either already in the lake or soon to be. The fish run between 1 and 2 pounds. The trips join a "regular" population of cutthroat, planted as fingerlings, bass and perch. A custom-made habitat for shore fishermen and inflatable boaters.
"We get scattered reports of a few big cutthroat coming out of there," Barkdull said.
Joining Whistle Lake in the latest triploid plants are Blackman's Lake in Snohomish (300 fish) and Gissberg Ponds at Twin Lakes County Park (350 fish).
