NORTH SHORE FISHERIES STOCKING
A full day of fish stocking yesterday and the black flies were out in full force!! There was Ron D. and Ron W. Ginny, Gerry, Rejean and myself for our group but many more from the North Shore Fisheries organization from Elliot Lake and Blind River. We bucketed our fish to the lakes and streams whereas the helicopter took them to lakes that would have taken hours to reach.
We stocked Brown Trout, Rainbows and Brookies but their locations are secret. The fish need a while to get used to their new homes and to start eating what they should be eating so that they taste good to us. If you caught them now they wouldn't taste too good. So let them be for a while.
Rejean got to stock his spot he has been asking for for years. This year they put it on the list for Rainbows. He was very happy.
The North Shore Fisheries is the organization I volunteer for. Help is needed for lake studies and for stocking. It is very rewarding work knowing that we are helping the tourist industry in our area and also keeping the lakes and rivers and streams stocked with healthy fish for your fishing pleasure.
The last picture is of the Jacuzzi - locals will know where that is. It is flowing like crazy!!
