Fishies from Heaven — Plane Drops Trout from the Sky [VIDEO]

What happens when you can’t reach lakes by land to restock them?

You take to the air, of course.

It’s been going on since the 1950s, but this is the first time anybody ever thought of capturing the aerial restocking of Utah’s remote lakes.

Ted Hallows, who supervises the State Hatchery in Kamas, UT, came up with the idea of putting a GoPro camera on the plane to capture the process. The hatchery is charged with coordinating Utah’s aerial stock.

“They kind of flutter down, so they don’t impact very hard, they flutter with the water and they do really well.”

– Ted Hallows, speaking to FOX13 News, Salt Lake City. 

So far the videos – you can find a whole series of them on Youtube — have been a hit. This one was just over 400,000 views at the time of this post.
