The Brown Trout grow huge on scraps thrown in
While breeding they become so fixated with each other you can get very close to the fish
The River Wye is one of the only rivers were rainbow trout breed in the UK.
Although the exact records are missing, it is believed that a consignment of very small fish was on its way to Scotland from the Washington state in the United States in 1910. for some reason they were put into a lake on the grounds of Ashford Hall to spend the winter. The river flooded that year and the rainbow trout found a new home.
The darker male and lighter female pairing up getting ready to breed. I'll be returning to get more footage of them hopefully breeding. While the Atlantic Salmon is the king of rivers the Grayling is called the lady of the stream and certainly deserves it title.
Even had a photobombing brown trout come into the video!
