What is the purpose? Is this for educational purposes alone? Is that a year round cold water stream and these guy's will grow to be caught by anglers, or do these become anadromous? Those are small fish, so this isn't for a put and take fishery. What species? Were these actually raised in classrooms?  I want to know more.


I would have loved that as a kid, or now even. Bet there are very few days that you leave work feeling like you had a bummer of a day.

The focus of the program is definitely more educational than any sort of stock enhancement.

TIC is a statewide program in California. Fish & Wildlife provides hatchery rainbow trout eggs to local fly fishing clubs across the state. They then disperse the eggs and Aquarium setups to participating teachers in their areas. The classes then grow out the eggs to a be released.

None of the trout are released into any waters that contain any native RBT populations. In the long run the fish are in all likelihood food for gamefish. However a large portion of the program focuses on education of life cycle, importance of habitat, dangers of releasing pets, watershed conservation etc.
