Fall Fin Clipping 2018

Once again IEFFC Volunteers helped the Washington Department
of Fish and Wildlife at the Little Spokane River Fish Hatchery in
September. About 60,000 triploid female rainbow trout were fin
clipped for the ongoing Long Lake program. Talk around the
clipping trough indicated that fishing out at Long Lake has
been fairly good on the previous years’ plants so folks might
want to go try it out. Thank you to the IEFFC members who
volunteered including Bob Harley, Tom Hoag, Dan Lobb,
Keith Kuester, Bob Burton, Phil Beck, Floyd Holmes, Jon
Bowne, Jim Athearn and his brother, Bob.

Those little devils can be mighty slippery!
