Kiwanis Park Pond in Lewiston is freshly stocked with 750 catchable rainbow trout

A truckload of 750 catchable sized 10-inch trout arrived at Kiwanis Park pond this morning. Hatchery staff busily worked to measure the water temperature to ensure the fish were properly acclimated to the current water conditions.

After learning that the water temperature in the truck tank of 53F matched closely to the temperature in the pond, the hoses came out and preparations began to release the fish.
