The trip to the Qu’appelle fish hatchery was a wonderful success, and we could not have had better weather for it. Our timing was perfect to coincide with the stock of Walleye hatching out, and much of the trout stock approaching their release dates. And of course we were able to see the hatchery’s captive breeding stock of Rainbow trout.
Here are some pictures of the event. They are also available on out Facebook page.
