Trout ranging in size from 8 to 24 inches are purchased thanks to the support of our generous contributors. Getting the trout to Doylestown’s Borough Dam is only half the battle. It takes a community of students from area schools, as well as home-schooled and cyber-charter school students along with a cast of supporting players to get the trout from the trucks into the pond. For many this is just as much fun as opening day!
Carrying buckets of trout to the pond is a joyful labor for kids and adults alike
