I got an e-mail from Jeff Williams, who is our Chief Trout Biologist for AGFC. From time to time, AGFC requests help from the public for certain projects related to trout management.
If you’re going to be in the area from October 11-13, this marking project is a great way to get involved and learn more about the awesome trout that get put into this River… 🙂
If you want to participate, contact Jeff directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is Jeff’s e-mail below to tell you a little more…
We will be marking the 2011 cohort of brown trout at the Norfork National Fish Hatchery October 11-13. These fish will be distributed among the Spring River and the Beaver and Norfork Tailwaters. If you are willing and able to assist, we could sure use the help. We will get started on Tuesday, October 11th. All you will need to bring is rain gear and a lunch. We will have plenty of water and Gatorade on hand.
Please let me know if you plan on helping so I can schedule. Also, if you know of anyone else that might be interested feel free pass this e-mail along to them. Thanks.
Jeff Williams, AGFC
