Farm raised?

Those fish are fat for this time of year. Small head and large body makes me think hatchery. Am I close?

Wow, those are really nice Golden's - they usually don't get that big...at least not up in the high pan lakes in NorCal.

I hope you don't ruin them. All we used to do was gut 'em, wash 'em out in the lake or stream, fry 'em in a skillet w/butter, and eat 'em.

I think your technique may be incorrect, Richard!

Oh yeah, they're from a hatchery look at the second picture closely. The nets are to keep predatory birds out. Can't bullshit a bullshitter. I started my career in a hatchery. There were a couple of years that CO wasn't hiring game wardens due to budgetary reasons. That is when I got of school and needed work. I made the first class when they started up again.

Damned purists! Next thing you tell me is that you caught trout with 550 cord and a safety pin up in the Lincoln National Forest in NM, and fried 'em up in your canteen cup!

Poached dammit! Nobody with any sense fries in a canteen cup.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.

The trout does not taste farmed raised. The fish are in ponds feed by a natural spring next to a small stream, I think this water quality has a lot to do with the taste and texture of the fish we cooked (correctly) last night.
I have had other fish, particularly Strip Bass, that are farm raised and the flesh is not as supple. Its more elastic, and the taste is bland, not sweet and a bit musky like the golden last evening. I assume this affect is the water quality, and not the meal pellets, or whatever they use as feed.

A side note:NW Warren county is still rural and truly beautiful.
