Description Pesticides, lead, and arsenic were analyzed in composite samples of whole rainbow trout, rainbow trout fillets, and bottom sediments collected August-September 1996 from Wapato Lake, located in the fruit orchards above Lake Chelan. Lead arsenate was used historically to control codling moths in apple trees.
