What do stocked trout taste like?

Recommended Posts

How is the flavor of the trout taken from the DNR stocked ponds(Cenaiko/Courthouse?) My experience with trout stocked in lakes in Wisconsin is that they taste muddy. Is that the case with these fish, too?

Are they ever muddy! grin.gifgrin.gif

The question is not whether the fish taste muddy or not, but whether the water from which the fish came from tastes muddy. There is no muddy tasting water through the ice and I believe MN's trout stock ponds are not muddy either.

I think they taste the same as store bought or from up north. I've only experienced muddy tasting trout once and that was from a Lk way up on the Arrowhead trail.

Myself, I think they taste kind of funky...might be what they feed them at the rearing ponds...I've heard it's something like liver, or blood pellets, a nonvarying diet to keep production costs in line?

Most of those trout stocked in the lakes like Cenaiko and courthouse pond, don't live long enough to aquire anything from their envoirment, except maybe someones bait!

In open water, I think smaller stream trout are okay and I think smaller brook trout are actually good.

A lot of what a fish tastes like is what they eat. We do fish stocked trout lakes, but we don't head over there just after the truck leaves(these aren't metro lakes either) and by the time we are catching them they have been eating what the lakes has to offer for at least a few months so the probably have gotten rid of that stocked fish taste. But they taste dang good cool.gif

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
