Open House 2011

Our Open House was a huge success this year, with the beautiful weather and the great attendance we were able to show off our Hatchery and have some youngsters catch their first trout. Thanks to all who volunteered to help out and to all of you who attended.

End of our fish enhancement season 2011

Fish have been realeased from the Imprint project at the Edmonds Pier, the last of the fry have been set free in North Creek, net pen removed and packed away for another year and the hatchery pond drained and cleaned. Thanks to everyone who helped with all the feeding, cleaning, fry planting and everything else that needs to get done.
