« on: December 29, 2009, 07:31:11 AM »
I have a ? for ya, If you have a small  lake,lets say 5 -6 acres,and its been stocked for over 20years with nice browns.Then the stocking stops ,do you think the browns will spawn and reproduce .The lake is only spring fed no flowing water into it.What do you think?

From what i heard, not learned the answer is no. It would be reasonable to think that running water is necessary for the spawn. As long as the food source is within the lake for the trout i dont see why they couldn't survive for many years without spawning. I am interested to know the facts though. Anyone else ?
Oh Yeah !

trout build their nests in gravel and require cold, flowing, aerated water to reproduce. Brown trout can live to ages of 20 years. with temperatures between 55 and 65 F.
Never test the depth of the water with both feet.
