We had a fantastic turn out of volunteers today to catch this year’s broodstock. Thanks to all who attended. Our timing was good with great results. We caught 5 female and 3 male coho that are now resting at the hatchery holding tank.
For the first time of collecting broodstock we caught a hatchery female raised by us several years ago. This is our reward for all our hard work—our hatchery fish returning to spawn! We are still short of our quota and will fish again this Thursday Nov 1st at 10am, meeting at the same spot.
