I was out with the wife today on a trib to the Timber Coulee, quite a ways up and caught this. It's a 19 inch rainbow trout. I've only caught browns with a brookie here and there.
I talked to Mat at DA and he left a message with Jordon Weeks about it. He was surprised at the location. Any ideas or thoughts?

Most likely came from the pond upstream. Same place where retired WIDNR fish manager started the wild strain program 20 plus years past.

Nice catch!!ThumpUp

Size is right, but color, fins, and overall condition look too good to be a recent brood stocker. Is it possible it washed out of a spring pond anywhere nearby?

I told Mat the location and he came up with nothing. I'm curious to see what if any feedback comes back from the DNR. The fish was in great shape for a brooder. All the other brooders I caught look extremely rough. This fish also ran the entire length of the run, it almost beached itself trying to go downstream. Trapper, you make a great point. when did the stock this area with bows?

As far as I know, the only Bows stocked around here is at Esofea pond amd Runge Hollow impoundment.

Jorden does not get much value supporting spent brooders taking up valuable natural food sources, as a general thought. But it does happen , just not much.

Most are dead within a year.

So consider your catch a great one!!
