The Round Valley Trout Association
On Sunday March 26th, the Musky Trout Hatchery truck arrived at the make-shift launch ramp to deliver this year’s fish. RVTA invested $4,500 in our annual stocking program for 2017. This year, RVTA continued to support the future Brown Trout population by introducing about 200 14” brownies, all tagged RVTA 7 into the reservoir. Brown Trout are a hardy breed and have a longer life expectancy than rainbows. We hope they will provide more fishing enjoyment into the future. Also stocked were 100 juvenile Golden Trout. These Browns and Goldens will not be legal keepers in 2017, so please catch and “gently” release. Please do not remove the jaw tag, as the tag indicates the stocking year, and will help in tracking their growth progress during the next few seasons. Also stocked were a number of 21+ Rainbows all with a RVTA jaw tag.
Each year, the Round Valley Trout Association conducts it's annual trout stocking at the gravel ramp. We stock a good number of better than average size fish from the Musky Trout Hatchery. Members help to float stock the fish through out the Reservoir. Stocking takes place in early May. Be sure to check the Calendar of Events for exact date and time. All of these Trout are jaw-tagged "Join RVTA" as a club promotion.
