Three Young Rainbow Trout Fish - CPW - Bill Vogrin
Three rainbow trout, offspring of Gunnison River rainbows, are shown last February in the Mount Ouray Hatchery in Salida. With help from the Collegiate Peaks Chapter of Trout Unlimited volunteers, CPW snipped the left pelvic fins from 40,000 Gunnison River rainbows, each around 3 inches long, to prepare them for stocking in the Arkansas River. A November survey found some of the fish had grown 10 inches. Photo courtesy Colorado Parks and Wildlife / Bill Vogrin
