Fin Clipping -Fall

On September, 23rd, 2014, IEFFC again visited the Spokane Fish Hatchery to do some fin clipping.

IEFFC members Jerry Harms, Keith Kuester, Floyd Holmes, Ivan Lines, Bruce Morgan, Ray Kranches, Tom Hoag, Lee Funkhouser and Jim Athearn volunteered to assist Spokane Fish Hatchery in a fin clipping operation.

About 23,000 small, rainbow triploids were clipped as part of a 10-year program for Long Lake.  These fish were small (2 – 4”) which made the job a little more challenging than in previous events.
