Colorado Parks and Wildlife will give away kokanee salmon at Joe Rowell Park in Dolores at 3 p.m., Oct. 19 and Oct. 26. Anyone wanting fish must hold a valid 2017 Colorado fishing license.
The number of fish each person receives will be determined by the number of kokanee collected during the spawning run and the number of people who show up for the giveaway.
People interested in receiving fish should bring a container. Most of the kokanee are from nine to 11 inches long.
Kokanee are a freshwater, landlocked sockeye salmon. It is not native to Colorado but is well suited to Colorado’s large reservoirs and is a popular game fish.
