Got back into fly fishing for trout on the east side this spring, Forgot how fun it can be. Started to check out the WDFW Hatchery Trout Stocking Plan for lakes around the state. Noticed the E. Wa lakes get lots of fingerling plants. My question is how long does it take them to grow to there max? Say to 18"-20". What is there life span? I understand a little about they are victims of their environment, so lake size, water temperature and food supply play a role. But on average, how fast can they grow and how long do they live?
