W
allowa Lake, Kinney Lake southeast of
Joseph, and seven ponds will be stocked
with 55,000 rainbow trout before the
middle of August, says Oregon Department of Fish
and Wildlife (ODFW) District Fish Biologist Jeff
Yanke.
Yanke says the fsh will at least be the legally
catchable size of 8” long, with some “trophy” fsh
stocked as well to heighten fsher interest.
Oregon’s Free Fishing Weekend June 7-8 will
trigger the stocking of fsh in many select locations,
including popular Marr Pond in Enterprise.
Starting before Memorial Day, rainbow were
being stocked at two-week intervals in Wallowa
Lake, Yanke says. He notes that the end of stocking
rainbow in Wallowa Lake, like ODFW’s Wallowa
County fsh stocking program as a whole, occurs by
mid-August.
Kinney Lake, about eight miles from Joseph, is
stocked with rainbow three times a year, in May,
June and July.

The three-school Cubs
softball team won its first-
round playoff game against
Santiam Christian last
Wednesday, May 28, be-
fore traveling to Dayton for
a quarterfinal match-up on
Friday, May 30. The Cubs
lost the latter game, ending
their season.
Playing against Santiam
the Cubs came from five
runs down to beat the Eagles
6-5. The Dayton Pirates han-
dled the Cubs 14-1.
Wednesday’s game start-
ed out a little slow for the
Cubs with the Eagles scor-
ing the first five runs. San-
tiam scored one in the top of
the first inning, another run
in the second and three more
runs in the in the fourth. The
score was 5-0 going into the
bottom of the fourth when
Amy Edison singled and
Macey Frei followed with a
two-run homer. In the bot-
tom of the fifth the Cubs
scored three more runs. Ed-
ison batted in one run on a
fielder’s choice and Cal-
lyn Stewart knocked in two
more with a double.

Haley Miller, 13, a 7th
grader at Joseph Charter
School, has bested 800-meter
and 1500-meter track records
set in 1987 and 1998.
And the oldest of those
two former records was set
27 years ago by the young-
est daughter of Miller’s track
coach, John Roberts.
Running at the Oregon
State Middle School Cham-
pionships last Saturday in La
Pine, Miller ticked more than
two seconds off her school’s
longstanding record set by
Samantha Roberts Smith.
In winning that race, Miller
was clocked in 2:32.23, be-
neath Smith’s prior record of
2:34.7.
One week earlier, on Fri-
day, May 23, Miller crossed
the fnish line in the 1500-me-
ter event – while competing in
the highly competitive Meet
of Champions in Corvallis –
in another Joseph junior high
school record time of 5:00.96.
