An April Reminder to not Tread on Redd
A reminder today regarding the Rainbow Trout Redds currently in the Missouri River.
Don’t step on them.
They, the eggs and trout doing the fragile incubation and spawning dance of tomorrows trout population, would like you to give them a break.
Social distance yourself from those trout redds bro.’
Could be the catch phrase of the next decade. Or not. But that dude is right. Give them a break. Don’t disturb. Social distance yourself when you see those bright patches of gravel.
And if you see a bundle of trout lying near the bottom and kinda stay there as you creep towards them…those are trout on redds.
That’s it for today. Stay away when you see odd behavior from trout, or scrubbed clean gravel patches in knee to waist deep waters.
