First stocked lake trout caught

Jerime Williams
Jerime and Jason Williams this week have caught several lake trout that were stocked by the Ministry of Natural Resources. The fish are identified by a missing fin. The missing right ventral fin and 23-inch length of this fish indicate it was probably released as an 18-month fingerling in 2012.
The Williamses and other anglers are also catching 14-inch trout stocked two years ago near Potato Island. These anglers are seeing hundreds of the small trout on their fish finders. Those were the first trout planted in the west end of Red Lake. The rest were planted at several locations in the east end.
I have lots of photos to share of the great fishing and the great summer it has been. We have just been too busy to get on the 'net to this point.
