Status of the Fishery Newlan Creek Reservoir has typically provided quality angling for stocked Rainbow Trout, as well as the potential to catch large (30+ inches, 8+ lbs) Burbot (otherwise known as Ling). In 2015, kokanee and Gerrard Rainbow Trout were also stocked in an effort to increase the diversity of angling opportunities. The gerrard strain of Rainbow Trout is known for its ability to reach large sizes in some situations. The hope is the Gerrard Rainbow Trout will utilize the abundant suckers in the reservoir, reducing the sucker biomass, while providing the potential for a trophy Rainbow Trout fishery.
