Cleaning - Packing - Price
For some people, cleaning their catch is part of the fun of fishing, and you may do so, or we will clean them for you for .50 cents each. We will filet or clean your trout whole whatever you prefer. Rainbow trout may be refrigerated up to seven days of purchase. We double bag and ice down all orders. Trout cost $5.95 per pound live weight.
