Salmonid fishes were pumped into the Ludington Reservoir shortly after plan operations began. Reservoir residence periods were brief (days) and populations did not increase over time. Peak entrainment periods were: rainbow trout, March/April and October through December; brown trout, June through October; coho and chinook salmon, September/October; lake trout, October.
