Can't seem to link story, so to you will have to look it up. They fly over the lake dropping the fish out of planes. Apparently 95 percent survive.

I saw that headline but didn’t read the story. What kind of fish?

You should just watch them falling from the bottom of the plane. I think they said trout.

trout can jump up and down fast flowing falls. And if they were just babies they don't weigh anything and wouldn't hit the water with any real force

I saw a helicopter drop fish at a lake here ,he came in real low and out they came and not sure if they survived that but no reports on it yet .It is a private lake and the owner stocks it with trout for some kind of family thing he has .

Wow what a way to get to a new home! They do that here too and all over the country prolly. Would be like feathers floating down and I would suppose some die just cuz some fry just don't make it for whatever reason in any water bodies. Survival of the fittest!
