On March 27th our Collins Lake crew released four out of twelve net pens of trout, the equivalent of about three plants! Next week we will be getting another 1,800 lbs. of trophy trout and release yet another two net pens. That is a whopping 6,500 lbs. of trout in a two week span!!
Daylene, Bailey, & Dearrel from Robbins caught 12 Rainbows from the beach shoreline on worms or green Powerbait. Jack Borges & Selena Glick from Pioneer trolled with flashers & crawlers near Goose Island and caught their trout. John & Courtney from Colfax trolled Rapalas and together landed a beautiful limit of trout (biggest 3-1/4 lb.)
