Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)
Habitat: Moderate-high-gradient cold-water streams with swift riffles and deep, clear pools. They are also well adapted to deep, cold-water lakes within certain temperature limits. They can tolerate warmer water (55-65 degrees F. is optimal) and tend to be somewhat hardier. The maximum tolerable water temperature is 77°F, but some populations may be able to withstand temperatures in the low eighties for short periods of time.
Orders of 6‐8” trout must be picked up on May 3rd between 12:00 and 1:00 pm at Oxbow Park (at the end of Portland Street past Morrisville Lumber). After 1:00 pm, we will forfeit unclaimed orders and will not keep the trout. Trout are provided in an air sealed large plastic bag. It’s best to stock trout immediately in your pond after pick up to insure their survival.
