Preston, MN
This Trout is 19 feet long and installed on a trailer. It was produced by FAST Fiberglass and has been here since at least 2006. There was once a six-foot-long chainsaw carved fish in town but it fell into such disrepair that it was destroyed. [map]

Kalkaska, MI
Palisade, CO
This Trout in Kalkaska is 17 feet long and 12 feet tall. It leaps in a fountain. This is the third version of the fish that was originally installed here in 1966. The original fiberglass statue was produced by Ben son of the Plycrete Mold Co. The original sculpture from which the mold was made was created by Elmer Johnson. The company was based in Elk Rapids, MI. When the statue was restored in 1987, a mayfly (now missing) was installed next to the trout's mouth. The trout is Michigan's state fish and Kalkaska is home to the National Trout Festival. A Giant Robin, Michigan's state bird, stood next to this Trout. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]
