LEVEL OF CONCERN: MODERATE
Goose Lake Redband trout do not face immediate risk of extinction. However, California populations are not secure because they are mostly small, largely isolated, and, during drought periods, the lake population disappears and stream populations contract.
From 2013-2015, Goose Lake dried up entirely, reducing the overall abundance of the population and causing remaining Goose Lake Redband trout to seek refuge in tributary streams.
