Today I had the opportunity to help with stocking 5,000 Brook Trout and 5,000 Brown Trout here in the State Park. It is a tradition of many fishermen to go out on the 1st of April and catch their first trout for the season.
As the fish hatchery trucks stopped along the creeks, the staff would load the fish into multiple buckets. Our helpers would then carry the buckets over to the waters edge and then release the fish into the creek. We had a great time helping stock these trout and it is always fun to see these beautiful fish up close.
I observed my first Eastern Phoebe for 2008 (CHECK) at our first drop off spot! The Phoebe wasn’t vocal and just sat there bobbling its tall at me! I only had my point-and-shoot camera with me so I didn’t get its picture! All other photos that I captured of the fish didn’t turn out due to the fog and rain that we had. So I decided to use all of these pictures from what I had captured last year.
