ESCONDIDO — Lightly-circulating rumors regarding the possibility of Dixon Lake and Lake Wohlford switching trout suppliers prior to the 2017-18 season were confirmed when Escondido City Council approved a contract with Calaveras Trout Farm.


The full schedule of delivery dates has yet to be finalized, but the first trout stock at Dixon is tentatively slated for Nov. 13, but lake officials said they’d be posting more details once concrete arrangements are made with Calaveras.


The 39th Annual Dixon Lake Trout Derby is also scheduled for Dec. 1-3, but that is also


tentative for the time being as there is always an outside chance of the water remaining too warm to stock trout, but anglers should casually assume the event will go off that Friday through Sunday.


Opening Day at Lake Wohlford will be Saturday, Dec. 9.
