Sat25Apr201510:00 amSpooner Hatchery
FISH members, their families and anybody interested in FISH are invited to hatchery grounds Saturday April 25. Beginning at 10:00 am to noon we will do some light grounds keeping work like raking, mulching and litter pick up to spruce up the grounds for the 2015 season. Then we’ll have a little meet and greet session over coffee and donuts before taking a tour of the hatchery. Should be lots of eggs incubating by that time and maybe a chance to actually see some walleye hatch. Just depends how this spring develops.
Contact Larry Damman at email@example.com for more information or let us know you’re coming.
