Fishery Development in Barren, Winterkill LakesMicroform - 1988
Fish are routinely graded in hatcheries to reduce size variability in order to provide optimum growth conditions until release, with a tendance for the large size class of graded fish to contain more males than the smaller size classes. It has been suggested that large graded rainbow trout stocked in the spring in a winterkill lake could be used to develop a trout fishery. This report presents the results of a study repeating a previous study by Tsumura, Hume and Chan (1987) but utilizing a more definite graded size grouping in the fish and a barren winterkill lake.
