Swimming Pool Trout 2011

Well, the trout season for this year is over as the water is warming up and soon the trout wouldn’t cope. We started with 50 trout (put in on May 6th as 15 gram fingerlings), and over the last month or so have been harvesting a few at a time. They ranged in weight from 450-800 grams. Our final harvest, 14 trout, weighed in between 800 grams and 1kg!!! We were very pleased with such a good result!
