Each year, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Department stocks anywhere between 100,000 and 140,000 trout through ice at Eleven Mile and Spinney Mountain reservoirs.
On Feb. 1, wildlife officials pumped 16,000 of those bad boys into Eleven Mile and captured video of it.
The trout that were placed in the reservoir are around 10 inches long and grow anywhere from 3 to 4 inches by spring time.
Eleven Mile Reservoir is an approximately 2 hour drive southwest of Denver if you get a hankering to go. You could do some ice fishing there if you felt real adventurous. If you don’t, well, you can always just sit inside and watch GIFs.
