It was calculated that the age range were between 1 and 5 years old. Captured fish were measured 19.5±5.9 cm, 113.55±100.22 g (n = 120), respectively. The condition factor of trout calculated 1.14±0.20 (n = 120). At the end of study, the rations in total organism number were Decapoda (43.59%), Trichoptera (19.21%), Haplotaxidae (18.59%), Ephemeroptera (10.36%), Odonate (2.74%), Coleoptera (2.74%), Clitellata (2.43%) and Diptera (0.3%), respectively.
