Location: Elkhorn Lake
I fished Elkhorn Lake on Thursday March 13, 2014 from 12-1 pm. I was on my lunch break I caught two Rainbow Trout on yellow garlic power bait. I know the DNR cuts one of the fins off but one of the two I had caught didn't have any cut off. I'm assuming they just missed that one since there's a lot of fish.
DNR Response: Hi James, our trout program does not routinely fin clip the trout that we stock. The practice of fin clipping has only occurred in a few isolated trout studies.
