WDNR Releasing Brooders

http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/fishing/documents/trout/CatchableTrout2013.pdf
Some of the Rainbows in Richland County are super sized and can put quite a bend on your rod.

I know the exact bridges in Richland they are released from.


All brooder bows released in Richland County are in c/r only areas and artificial only areas.
These big pellet fed monsters are easy to catch but typically don't stay in the area long.

They are patterned to swim downstream upon release.

When, looking at all the data, if you are looking for BROODERS being released the keys to look for are the amounts being released at 60 or less.  The WDNR would not waste a trip for 60 fingerlings.  60 and lower are the HORSES.
