Brown trout fingerlings released

May 14, 2012

For the first time, Trout in the Classroom partnered with the YMCA to allow students who attend a Collinsville YMCA program to raise trout there. On Friday, those students gathered at Fieldale Park along the Smith River to release their brown trout fingerlings into the wild. Dan River Basin Association staff also taught the kids about creatures that live in the river, including bugs the trout will eat and the northern water snake.
