DNR Captures Big Batch Of Kamloops Rainbows For Stocking Program

Look for a story and video from the French River in Sunday’s Duluth News Tribune about fisheries officials with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources capturing Kamloops rainbow trout.

Fisheries crews, using a seine net, collected more than 600 of the trout, one of the largest net pulls in many years. The fish are captured so that eggs can be taken from them for future stocking efforts. Catch the story Sunday here.
