Surplus brood trout release

Published on December 8th, 2010 by Rodney



Yesterday, we followed Kurt and Barry from the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC to Green Timbers Lake, where they released 150 brood rainbow trout. These trout, which have been used for producing catchable Fraser Valley rainbow trout that anglers enjoy catching at urban lakes, weigh up to 8lb. They are released at the end of each year as their production lifespan comes to an end. Rather than just disposing them, they are usually released into a few selected Lower Mainland urban lakes, where new and young anglers have an opportunity to catch a big trout.

This was also our first shooting with a new video camera that will follow us around in future fishing outings. The finished product was satisfactory. My apology in advance of the shakes, which will be worked on in future video. Other than that, I am quite pleased with it. I hope that you find the video informative. Kurt and Barry will be releasing another batch of these fish into Mill Lake today. Good luck if you decide to head down to Green Timbers Lake or the other urban lakes in the next several weeks.
