Potential stocking of hybrid striped bass into Caballo Reservoir

SANTA FE – The Department is hosting two public meetings to discuss the potential stocking of hybrid striped bass.

They grow rapidly and can attain weights in excess of 10 pounds. During the meetings, fisheries biologists will provide background information on the proposal and answer questions from attendees.
