Ontario Steelheader's & Lake Huron Fishing Club hard at work Part 2

Identifying and recording rainbow sex and condition, sampling rainbows and collecting scales & loading fish transfer trailer, another successful day for the volunteers on the Saugeen River, Thanx All, wish I could have been there
This was sent to me after I put the post up: We lifted 80+ fish on Saturday and had another 50 in the cage to lift on Sunday. It was my first time helping out, and man is that one remarkable event to witness. The OS and LHFC have lifted 250 to date against the permit for 500, so they are half way there. I think the next lift is Tuesday morning if any of you are looking for something to do.
