Another Successful Trout Release!

Our rainbow trout are enjoying their second day in their new habitat. We have been fortunate for many years to have access to release our trout in a private pond on the property of Armenta Cellars winery in rural Newberg. This year’s release was a great success. The weather was amazing, the kids were well behaved, and our trout were very healthy. In fact, the survival rate for our trout from the egg stage to fry stage was 99.8%, which was our most successful project since we started in 1993. We’re already looking forward to raising salmon in the fall!
