6:30 PM on May 20th. Update on North Cascades National Park fishing and stocking. Ashley Rawhouser, new bio for the NCNP, will be determining with park management which lakes in the NCNP get fish. Come hear him present the current status, including about rotenone projects (killing unwanted fish) and the current political status of stocking. There is an urgent need for detailed surveys of certain NCNP lakes with an eye towards fish stocking. Program will include opportunities for Hi-Lakers, including possibly training. The Hi Lakers have been involved in NCNP stocking issues; as our club prez says, "this is an important program and also timely."
