Where are you going to get them from?
I rang Buxton Trout Farm today, they said they've got 8 month old 3-4"fingerlings for $1.40 each.

The trout I got as 30-50 mm long last year are from the same batch as the ones they have now. At the time one of the guys told me they divide the fingerlings up so they can feed them at different rates. This enables them to carry fish all year round of various sizes. My survivors are about 6-8" now.
