View Full Version : Volunteers needed to tag trout
Wildlife Resources Div, Fisheries Section is in need of about five volunteers to help with tagging 30,000 brown trout at Buford Hatchery on April 11-14 (Tue-Fri). Volunteers don't need to help all days, if you can spare one, that would help! The crew will most likely be done by Thursday, so Friday is a just in case day. If you are interested and can help, please contact Lisa Klein at 770-918-6418. Thanks!

I thought they were all moving to Greenville! Seriously, people say we are on track to be in the sad shape Atlanta and Charlotte are in in 20 years if we can't control, or at least organize the growth. The I-85 corridor will just be one big suburb between Atlanta and Charlotte. We all know the difference 'tween yankees and dam* Yankees http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/wink.gif. Still, think I'll stay put for now.
Back to the point - I'd love to tag some fish, but that's a long drive. Maybe the SC DNR could use some help at the Walhalla hatchery - I could make that trip - perhaps a days labor for just one cast- please!!!!!!!! http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/wink.gif I'll have to call somebody.

What does it mean to tag a fish? Are they cliping fins or is there another taging system that they are using like a rubber or plastic strip near the dorsal fin. I would like to be able to identify fish that came from the buford hatchery. I dunno, I think it would be neat to know where they come from. Also, does the Buford hatchery just stock the hooch or other waters. Thanks, J. Byrd.

Click on "Corkboard" to read about the current tagging project. Think Bill Couch told us at one of the Primers that half the fish from Buford Hatch. go to the Hooch-the others elsewhere-Amicalola for one. 600,000 fish per year stocked out of BH I believe he said.
