SAXON, Wis. - Lake Superior was stocked with approximately 25,000 yearling brown trout fish at Saxon Harbor on Wednesday by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
The seeforellen species of brown trout were hatched at Les Voigt fish hatchery in Brule last July, said Mike Rackouski, a fish hatchery technician at the Brule facility. The hatchlings were moved to the outdoor rearing hatchery in Brule in September where they wintered and grew to four inches to be released in the spring.
"These are 16 to 18 months old," Rackouski said.
