On Wednesday morning 800 Brown Trout and 2000 Rainbow were stocked at Heritage Lake.

Jack Reader of the Morinville Fish & Game Association along with Gary Preece and Laurie Semotiuk of the Edmonton Old Timers Fishing Club assisted with the arrival, delivery and stocking of the lake.

Alberta’s Provincial Stocking program supplies roughly 240 lakes with hatchery-reared trout, providing recreational angling opportunities for Albertans.

Earlier this spring, the Fish & Game Association pond was stocked with trout.

    • Trevor, this is a man made lake and that is the only way to get these fish in there. Yes, for the real lakes, I remember those days as well and we had fun well they lasted but to many people have over fished them, very sadly.
