Rainbow trout fly out of hose in mesmerizing viral video

Restocking part of effort to restore lake

Video of rainbow trout being stocked at an Indiana park show just how this process happens: fish fly out of a hose into the water.

The video, released by the Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife, was posted Wednesday on the Indiana State Parks Facebook page. The fish were introduced to the lake as a result of a dredging project to restore the waterway.

The video has more than 200,000 views. Some said in the comments that watching the process has a mesmerizing effect. Others imagined what the fish were thinking.

"Sorry, I can't stop laughing," John Gardner wrote. "There's just something comical about seeing fish shot out of a tube. It's like you can hear them shouting, 'What the heck?'"

The park said they stocked 751 fish in the lake.
