Hillcrest & Sacred Heart School Salmon Release & Hatchery tour
The Schools started to release their/our Salmon on Friday April 19th, Starting at 10am the 1st school arrived released the Chinook Salmon then the Students headed to the Trout Hatchery for a tour & it couldn't be a better time, we just collected 61,000 Rainbow Trout Eggs, our Brown Trout are 4 months old & we still have the Rainbows from last year as they will start releasing them on Saturday. I walked into the river to get the Students on Video & found out I have a hole in my Chest waders, water was 47 degrees F, over the next 2 weeks all the Schools will be Releasing their Salmon. ENJOY. After the Release Al set-up a Light House tour to finish off their day.
