Fish Run

010O7759

The New Mexico Game & Fish Department stocked the clearwater ditch this morning. The game warden had to do a 25 yard dash from his truck with a net full of 14 month old Rainbow Trout to the bridge where he released the fish into the clearwater ditch. With the beaver dam on the other side of the bridge, the water is three to four feet deep, so after the initial shock of their high dive into the water, the fish quickly recovered and swam off in various directions. The warden said the trout came from the Lisboa Springs Fish Hatchery north of Pecos, New Mexico.
