Atlantic salmon fry stocking - MA needs volunteers


The state has sent around a few flyers looking for volunteers to help them stock Atlantic salmon fry into suitable rearing waters this upcoming spring. I have done this in Vermont and think it is a pretty nice way to get outside, see some new streams and participate in a worthwhile event. I have set up the announcement in a web page so you can see the dates and contact information. Click <!--http--><a href="" target="_blank">here</a><!--url--> to see the info. I am not affiliated with them, but thought I'd pass it along.

If you do go - my suggestion is to bring another change of clothes - as you may get sweaty and/or it may be snotty weather, and it is nice to change so you don't get uncomfortable. BTW this is where a pair of breathables would shine.

Also, this is a good opportunity to introduce an older child or teenager to the ideas we espouse all the time (i.e., conservation, restoration and in general the need to keep environments protected). As a bonus - it is a great way to check out prospective trout destinations - you may want to stash a 3wt in the vehicle for some fishing later that day. You could tie up some fry patterns and go to a few of the locations where browns are at - you'd probably clean up .

I'm all over it! If others want to car pool, let me know.

I am more likely to make weekend dates so I would like to sign up for April 29 / 30.

Thanks Pete - it'll be good to do something for a great cause.

RE:Atlantic salmon fry stocking - MA needs volunteers

Thanks Pete I was wondering about that. I went out on the Millers River with Caleb Slater and the crew last year. It was alot of fun, although the water was so low we wound up dragging the canoes most of the way. We split the bottom of our canoe on the rocks took a good soaking but that shouldn't be a problem this year with the high water. I had never been up in that area before it's really nice and was a good day helping a worthy cause.
