Exclamation Rainbow Trout-Spawning (Info.) 4/10/12

Rainbow Trout-Spawning (Info.) 4/10/12
I just wanted to remind those that are interested that rainbow trout are spawning on the Clinch and many other tailwaters right now. Be careful of walking on/over the redds. Also; be mindful of releasing the females that are full of eggs. I was filming yesterday and a guy walked right over a redd. He asked if I noticed those fish fighting.

I don't think this is a huge issue in respect to the whole scope of survival for the fish. However; I just wanted to remind others....

I have some underwater video and some other video to post later...

Here is a reference image from http://www.conservationinc.net/our-work to help illustrate a redd.
