The Nest of Trout

Water temp 3,8oC
Flow 14,5m3/s
I was gladly surprised about the number of trout nests. At the same time sizes of the nests tell about what size of fish have made those. Eighteen of the nests are in lenght between two and three meters. Normally it is 60cm trout wich digs this size of hole. We found four relatively big nests and two of those were almost four meters long. It is over 70cm long trout which dig these size hole and besides of those we found two nests oven 4 m in size. These size nests you can expect to find in big lake/river systems like as Lake Saimaa. For example in Kerma Rapids and Vihonvuonne. Trout digging this size of nests must be over 80cm size. During inventory, one this size trout was seen, not clearly but the widht of its back was more than 20cm. This tells that it is over 80cm long, which is very gorgeous brown trout.
