The Brodhead Chapter of Trout Unlimited is supporting a Trout in the Classroom program at Swiftwater Intermediate School in Swiftwater, Pa for 2015. As of early April, approximately 60 brook trout have hatched and reached 2+ inches in length.
The sixth grade students involved in the program learn about the need for cold, clean waters to support wild trout and their growth. They learn about optimal temperatures, flowing water, pollution and other factors that impact upon the growth of brook trout. The fry should be released some time in May and we’ll keep you posted.
