‘Survivor Strain’ Farmington Brown Trout Schedule

As I’ve blogged before, CT DEEP does a great job of breeding and stocking “survivor strain” brown trout. They’re meant to be hardy and spook easily.

A blog reader recently wrote in to inquire about a large brown he had caught and when it might have been stocked. He saw a colored elastomer behind one of the trout’s eyes.

So, I did some online research and found the table below, in case it might be helpful.

It’s true, I’ve not blogged in a while. That is because I haven’t fished at all in a few weeks, as “real life” has required a lot of my time. Hopefully, that will change soon.

Tight lines to all!

Edit: For the 2018 stockings, I wrote CT Fish and Wildlife: large adults (green behind right eye), yearlings (green behind left).
