How Did This Trout Get Here?

Recommended Posts

hey guys there is a very  shallow creek near my house , i crossed it one day ( short cut to school ) and i saw a rainbow trout about 20 inches big swim right past me

i was so shocked because i have never seen fish in this creek, it's about 10 inches of water.

how do you think it could've gotten here? i was about 10 km away from the lake too

i came back with my fly gear looking for the fish, but it unfortunately dissapeared

the waters dirty as hell too, sewer and stuff and pee

Hard to say for sure. There was a little creek near my house when I was a kid that had some small fish in it one day, all of a sudden when there hadn't been any fish in it before. I later found out that a guy that lived nearby threw a bunch of fish from his pond in there.

The DNR stocks trout in a lot of the creeks around here.  Is it possible that it's a stocked creek?

I fish at one place where it gets runoff from a large lake from a flowing stream. I caught a 5lb salmon one day to good size trout the next. They did stock trout on one afternoon just before a big thunder storm hit. There's been trout down stream ever since.

There's another place I fish at that has good size bass by now. Though the many years they have gone from 1 pound to 3 pounders and probably 5 pounders by now. This is a drainage pond for a parking lot for a complex of businesses. We think the ducks transference the bass and panfish eggs there on there legs or bodies. I have no clue how the fish got there. I caught them as they were growing up.

Bass weren't native anyway we had bass hatcheries here and they stocked bass here many years ago. Now it's up to the bigger gals to keep the population of bass up in numbers.

I live about 50 minutes from the Great Smokey Mountains National Park which is full of trout streams. I do quite a bit of fly fishing and I know that trout don't need very deep water to survive. As for the dirtiness it really depends on aquatic life, pH, and water temperature. I have caught 22 inch trout from a stocked stream that is dirty to the point that I wade only waist deep. Hope this helped!
