WDFW again contacted IEFFC to see if we could provide assistance to the Spokane Hatchery with fin clipping. We had eleven hearty individuals show up on Wednesday, September 23rd to spend a day clipping adipose fins on microscopic fish. If you have not had the opportunity to participate, let Jim Athearn know so he can contact you in the Spring. It is a valuable service and a memorable experience, especially when they do not sedate those wily critters enough to keep them still.
The members participating were Jerry Harms, Ivan Lines, Stephen Aspinwall, Bill Papesh, Neal Beechinor, Chet Allison, Floyd Holmes, Bob Burton, Leon Buckles, Don Perry and Scott Fink.
Thank you very much for helping.
