Wa­ter: Sil­ver Lake Basin Tar­get: North­ern Pike

Field and Stream - - F&S -

In 2003, the dam at Sil­ver Lake Basin failed, re­leas­ing 9 bil­lion gal­lons of wa­ter. Low wa­ter lev­els fol­low­ing the fail­ure and sev­eral years of re­pairs wiped out the trout pop­u­la­tion, but the north­ern pike that found their way in dur­ing the breach have taken a strong hold. Mid-40inch fish are there for the tak­ing.
