Mad River (Humboldt County), 1660 Hatchery Road, Arcata, CA 95521. Trinity River (Trinity County), 1000 Hatchery Drive, Lewiston, CA 96052. Feather River (Butte County), 5 Table Mountain Blvd., Oroville, CA 95965. Feather River Thermalito Annex (Butte County), 4700 Highway 99, Oroville, CA 95965.

Mokelumne (San Joaquin County), 25800 North McIntire Road, Clements, CA 95227. Merced River (Merced County), 4998 Robinson Road, Snelling, CA 95369. Over the past 6 years, the CDFG has planted over 49 million combined salmon and trout in hundreds of locations, including some high mountain lakes, low elevation reservoirs, and various streams and creeks. It is anticipated that the production of trout species will increase as a result of the implementation of AB 7. This increase in production will be achieved through options within the existing hatchery system and through the continued assistance of SFRA funding. If the SFRA funding is withdrawn, it may be necessary for CDFG to cut other activities to meet the AB 7 fish production goals. The CDFG has also issued approximately 80 private stocking permits annually, with the majority being issued to individuals stocking rainbow, brook and brown trout; channel and bullhead catfish; large mouth bass; white and black crappie; bluegill; redear; mosquito-fish; white and green sturgeon; and triploid grass carp. dwashington3 on PRODPC61 with NOTICES Purpose and Need The EIS must explain the underlying purpose and need to which the Lead Agency is responding in proposing the action. The purpose of this FWS action is to provide Federal SFRA funds to CDFG to support actions associated with their fish hatchery and stocking program (the 13 trout hatcheries (listed above) and the Mad River anadromous fish hatchery) to provide sportfishing recreation in California. The funds are needed to support angler success within both urban and rural waterbodies. SFRA funds will not, however, be used to support private stocking permits. VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:19 Aug 04, 2008 Jkt 214001 45471 Alternatives DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR Proposed Action Alternative Bureau of Indian Affairs Under the proposed action, FWS will continue to provide funding for CDFG’s 13 hatcheries and the Mad River anadromous fish hatchery. Indian Gaming No Action Alternative Under the No Action Alternative, the FWS would not approve SFRA grant funds to be used by CDFG to support actions associated with the operations of their fish hatcheries and fish stocking program. Because of the State statutory and public trust requirements related to the hatchery program, CDFG would attempt to continue to implement its State hatchery program, seeking other funding sources to replace the Federal funds. Other Alternatives In the EIS, FWS will consider a range of alternatives that could accomplish the proposed action’s purpose and need. FWS will be rigorously exploring and objectively evaluating a reasonable range of alternatives with the proposed action and no action alternatives, taking into account the feasibility of the alternatives, as well as the ability to address significant impacts on the human environment.
