S.O.N.S. HATCHERY OPERATIONS 2016 -2017

After nearly six months, hundreds of man hours, several inspections and a setback the season is coming to a close at the SONS hatchery. It all started with the receipt of 600 brown trout in November. Our hatchery staff reared the six inch fish to a 10-12 inch size. This was the result of hours of feeding, water treatment and tank cleaning. We received our allotment of walleye eggs in April at the hatchery but then we had one setback this year when the temperature spiked to 84 degrees causing our hatchery water supply to go up quickly and killing about 400,000 eggs. We ended up stocking the remainder of the fish on Monday May 8th after we held an open house on Saturday and Sunday May 6th and 7th.

Our hatchery crew did an outstanding job not only by caring for the fish but doing some needed housekeeping, painting and minor repairs.
