DNR crews get creative, fashion trout zip line

The Minnesota DNR gave some local trout the thrill of a lifetime in the form of a zip line built just for them.

A video released by the DNR shows Hutchinson fisheries crews taking trout from a trailer tank, putting them in a next and guiding them down the zip line. At the bottom, the 300 rainbow and 300 brown trout were put into Brown County’s Spring Creek.

The trout came from the Lanesboro Hatchery and made it into the creek just in time for the trout opener this weekend.
