Utah Department of Wildlife Drops "Fish-bomb" On Lake

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources recently dropped dozens of tiny trout from the sky in what is known as a “fishbomb”. The fish landed into a crystal blue mountain lake as part of the area’s “extreme fish stocking” efforts.

The fish are tiny — anywhere from 1–3 inches long — which allows more than 95% of them to survive the fall.

Fish-bombs first started in the 1950s when small airplanes would drop buckets full of fish into high alpine lakes.
