2,500 pounds of Rainbow Trout with large fish up to 12 pounds will be stocked for this upcoming event! There will be prizes for the top 5 largest fish caught over the two-day Trout Opening Event. Greg Even, coordinator for this event, said “This event is great for everyone, including families that want to spend some quality time together. It’s also perfect for sport fishermen because there will be some trophy fish included in the stock”.
