Trout are cool-water fish and live in waters that remain below 72 degrees within 4 feet of the surface year round. Lakes or ponds that are spring fed may be able to sustain large populations of these fish. If your pond does not meet these requirements, you may stock rainbow trout in fall and harvest by late spring. Call us to discuss which options might suit your pond or lake.
The rainbow trout is a hardy fish and an aggressive eater, so a large forage base should be established before or during stocking. However, this species readily takes to commercial fish food, making its diet easy to supplement. The pelletized food can be fed through the winter, as the trout will continue to feed and grow in these cooler temperatures. This activity will also provide the angler fishing opportunities in the off season. Spawning occurs in early spring on gravel beds of inlet streams. Without these tributaries, spawning is rare.
