State Stocking 3-4-15

The state brought about 200 rainbows and browns to the Ridley fly stretch today. Ed Collier, John Ritterson and I were on hand to help with the stocking. Also present were Officer Evancho, Phil Ewaka and a few helpers. Prior to the truck arrival, John used Ed's sledge hammer to open a hole in the 5" ice in the middle of the bridge pool. All fish were introduced to Ridley Creek through that hole. Slippery conditions all along the banks, and ice, prevented putting fish anywhere else.

The ice cannot last forever. When it's gone, I wish you tight lines.
