Wow, winter flew by for me while the hatchery was busy doing their annual maintenance and getting ready for the warm weather hatchery activities.
One thing I must mention is the hatchery manager Carlos Echevarria retired the end of the year 2021 and assistant manager Haile Macurdy has taken the job and will continue to run the hatchery for the foreseeable future. We will all miss Carlos and wish him well in retirement.
While the hatchery does their work every day, we at the Friends Group are making plans for the summer too. We will be participating in Earth Day activities in Columbus, have a volunteer work weekend, new member drive, and help out the hatchery as needed. As we do every summer, we will have a kids fishing day in June. We always need Friends and Volunteers year around, please fill out our contact form if you are interested in joining us.
