PLEASANTON -- A new crop of baby trout was set free by student environmentalists at Shadow Cliffs Regional Recreation Area last week.

Students, who raised the trout from eggs in classroom tanks, turned the fingerlings loose into the water as part of a state Fish and Wildlife program, Trout in the Classroom.

Students are given the tanks and trout eggs as part of the program.

About 200 students and teachers, from as far away as Tracy and Oakland, took part in the big release on March 14. The day also include fly-fishing demonstrations, art work and other fishy stuff.
