Līhuʻe – The fishing season for rainbow trout at Pu’u Lua Reservoir on Kaua‘i will begin June 20th. To address COVID-19 concerns and accommodate social distancing, a lottery system will be used to control entry. Anglers will be able to access the reservoir for 4-hour sessions scheduled between June 20th and July 11, 2020 on Saturdays and Sundays.
Application for the lottery will be online only through the DLNR Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR) website. Applicants must fill out an online form and provide an email address for the session assignment. Notification of fishing session assignments will be via email only. Entrance to Pu‘u Lua Reservoir will require a lottery confirmation email, fishing license, and photo identification.
The deadline for application is June 12. Confirmation emails with fishing session assignments will be sent out on or before June 17.
