Despite the snow in the mountains we are in spring and Jones Hole National Fish Hatchery is preparing. The Hatchery announced last week that they received 36,000 pounds of food that will last until the end of May to raise bonneville cutthroat trout. Last weekend 360,000 trout eggs came from Mantua State Hatchery to Jone Hole National Fish Hatchery. They came in water coolers filled with 47 degree water so that the eggs stay cool and moist. Once at Jones Hole the eggs are disinfected in iodine and measured. The hatchery will be raising the trout to 10 inches instead of the usual 8 inches and placing them in Strawberry Reservoir starting in mid June.
