Colorado Parks and Wildlife Fertilize 415,000 Cutthroat Trout Eggs


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN A FISHING EVENT, THEY ARE HAVING ANOTHER ONE AUGUST 3 AT A DIFFERENT LOCATION.>WE ARE GETTING CLOSE LOOK AT THE EFFORTS BY PARK AND WILDLIFE WORKERS TO BRING CUTTHROAT TROUT TO PARTS OF COLORADO. THEY MADE IT HAPPEN AT THE MASON RESERVOIR ON THE SOUTH SLOPE OF PIKES PEAK. CREWS WERE ELECTRO-FISHING THE CUTTHROATS IN NEARBY CREEKS AND STREAMS. THEY TOOK THEM BACK TO THE RESERVOIR WHERE THE FERTILIZATION PROCESS CAN BEGIN. THE TROUT WILL THEN BE TAKEN TO A HATCHERY BEFORE BEING RESTOCKED IN HIGH ELEVATION LAKES. CREWS WILL ACTUALLY DROP THEM IN FROM A PLANE. THEY WILL BE ABOUT AN INCH OR SO AND THEY WILL DROP FROM THE AIR ABOUT ONE INCH AND THEY CAN FLIGHT OVER THE LAKE AND DROP THEM FROM A COUPLE HUNDRED FEET IN THE LAKE AND THEY SURVIVE JUST FINE. PARKS AND WILDLIFE HAS AN EXPERT ON SITE TO TEST THE FISH TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE HEALTHY
