A zip-line for trout? It’s not as strange as it sounds.
The Minnesota DNR’s Hutchinson fishery crew made this zipline to help get trout from a trailer tank into Spring Creek earlier this month.
The 300 rainbow trout and 300 brown trout came from Lanesboro Hatchery ahead of trout opener.
Why a zipline? Because the alternative is carrying a 600 fish down a steep, rocky bank one net-full at a time. No thanks.
This crew looks to have the zipline method down to a science. That’s a good thing for Minnesota anglers, who can look forward to a great season on Spring Creek.
Thanks as always to the good folks at the MN DNR for everything they do to make sure Minnesota remains a destination for all outdoor-related pursuits.
Rumor has it that the DNR plans on hang-gliding a metric ton of walleye into Lake Mille Lacs.
