losing all of our Atlantic
salmon fry due to a clogged pipe, the club made inquiries at various
hatcheries and we found two hatcheries that had surplus
Atlantic salmon fry.
The club contacted the Adirondack
near Saranac Lake, NY and they had 10,000 fry to donate to
the club. The fish were a little bigger than we normally
The club borrowed a tank for transporting fish from the
Rome Fish Hatchery and Gary Bartell was able to use his truck to
transport the fish to Taberg where other club members were waiting.
The fish traveled well and none were lost on the trip.
fish were placed in the East Branch of Fish Creek near Taberg and
Furnace Creek which flows into the East Branch at Taberg.
The club gives thanks to the DEC fish hatcheries for their cooperation
and because of their cooperation the club had a successful year.
