These Kindergarteners Raised Trout and Released Them for Anglers to Catch

Kindergarteners at DaVnci Academy in Ogden, Utah, took part in a special project this winter.

The youngsters raised rainbow trout in their classroom.

Recently, the students released the hatchlings into the Ogden River for anglers to catch.

The local chapter of Trout Unlimited oversaw the entire process. The class received a $1,500 grant to raise the fish.

A giant chiller was needed by the kindergarteners to keep the rainbow trout eggs cold. During the winter, the river is 52 degrees. Throughout the process, the children studied the growth process, learned about conservation of the river and fly fishing.

Besides helping with raising the fish, the local Trout Unlimited provided interactive fly-tying lessons.
