Trout in the Classroom - Release Events
 
 
 
Would you like to see trout fry from a classroom tank being released into a Connecticut trout stream by students who raised them from eggs? Such events are part of the Trout in the Classroom program sponsored by local Trout Unlimited chapters. They usually take place in April, May and June, and, if not on school grounds, are open to the public. While some restrictions might be imposed by the Trout Unlimited coordinator, you will find these events to be an interesting educational experience along with the students. Because the young trout are still fragile, pet owners and parents of small children should be certain that the release is not disturbed in any way.
 
Following is a list of scheduled events arranged by the local Trout Unlimited Chapters. All dates and locations are subject to change without notice.
