Trout in South Australia

Given recent summer heat extremes in SA, I wonder how the trout are coping?

Not exactly a red hot trout state, but as I used to fish there many years ago for trout I am curious about the current status.

Who cares if they all died ... its a feral pest that has been talked up for ages anyway. The stocking groups should be putting more Murray cod in the rivers to eat them too.
Get out there and in amongst it :)

SA's trout streams are mostly very small and won't support much in the way of large native fish. "Feral import" redfin are fairly dominant too in the same streams.

There have been plenty of native fish dying in the Murray/Darling in recent years, not just the feral imports. Tough times for freshwater fish.
