East Bay residents have a rich and varied fisheries resource in the District's eleven freshwater lakes, numerous ponds, streams, and miles of Bay and Delta shoreline. The District fisheries program protects, conserves, enhances, and restores native fish and amphibian species, and offers myriad recreational angling opportunities to the public. Angler use fees support fish planting programs and habitat enhancement projects that encourage the growth of the game fish population. As part of this effort, and in cooperation with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the District manages a major fresh water lake fishery enhancement program that includes habitat improvements and regular stocking of game fish.
