State officials are trying to come up with a plan to keep fish safe as the state deals with the ongoing drought.  

The Legislature's Joint Committee on Fisheries and Aquaculture held its annual meeting on state fisheries Thursday at the state Capitol.

"California is facing one of the worst droughts in history, and all of our reservoir levels are at not healthy levels," said Charlton Bonham of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Maria Rea with the Central Valley Area Office of the National Marine Fisheries Service says her office is carrying out a drought contingency plan for this spring, summer and fall. 

The plan called for millions of salmon smolt to be released from the Coleman National Fish Hatchery to the Mare Island section of San Pablo Bay.
