CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wildlife officials are planning to collect kokanee eggs in the Flaming Gorge Reservoir in southwestern Wyoming in an effort to bolster the fish’s population and to establish additional spawning runs in other waterways across the state.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1v4sUjX ) fisheries biologists and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department will collect and spawn kokanee from Oct. 20 through Oct. 31.

Eggs will be hatched and reared to about three inches. Next spring, some of the kokanee will be returned to the reservoir, and others will be stocked into a few new brood lakes across Wyoming.
