I am in need of a rainbow trout that is 13 1/2 long. It HAS to fall in between 13 1/4 " to 13 3/4 " long. Can not be longer or shorter. If you have one,please email me at the above email address or post here.

They expressed an interest in supplying rainbow trout to taxidermists as I would prefer to specialize in browns and brooks. I only have so much cold water flow and browns and brooks are harder to find.

I contacted one place in Wisconsin and they never called me back the last time I contacted them. I figure they are out until Monday.
Thanks again,

Some of these trout hatcheries blow me away

They would rather sell trout for $2.00 a pound and either go to the trouble of hauling them live or processing them. Add to that the male fish are less valuable to them and they discard many of them after they use them for broodstock a few times. At first I tried to hit them over the head to convince them there was a market to supply taxidermist but to no avail. So I decided to do it myself.
