County sixth graders at Echo Canyon State Park. For two decades, students have been raising trout and releasing them into the reservoir in cooperation with the Nevada Department of Wildlife.

For the last two decades, sixth-grade classes from Panaca, Pioche and Caliente have been raising trout in cooperation with the Nevada Department of Wildlife.

The students learn the process of taking care of trout eggs and make sure the tanks stay at a constant temperature before the eggs are released into Echo Reservoir. This process takes approximately two months, depending on the temperature of the fish tanks.
