Fisheries for NOW... and the Future!
HEY CIFFI VOLUNTEERS!
California Dept of Fish and Wildlife is looking for volunteers to help with some hatchery projects, here’s DFW’s Kasie Barnes to tell you about her needs:
CA DFW VOLUNTEER REQUEST: Due to the drought, American River Trout Hatchery has turned off the water to their raceways and dried up their hatchery for the first time in decades. This has revealed some opportunities for improving the infrastructure of the hatchery holding facilities, including a new layer of sealant for the raceways and holding ponds.
Saturday, August 30, 2014 - The Sixth Annual CALIFORNIA INLAND FISHERIES FOUNDATION, INC./Project Eagle Lake Trout Family Fun Fall Fundraising Festival was held at Arnold’s Eagle Lake RV Park & Store, Spalding Tract, Susanville.
The size of the crowd continues to grow each year, probably because participants anticipate an enjoyable day in the Park and they’re inviting friends and relatives!
Saturday, July 5, 2014 – Another fun family fundraising event – the Annual Traditional July 4th Celebration – held at Arnold’s Eagle Lake RV Park & Store, Spalding Tract on the shores of Eagle Lake! Many familiar faces plus scores of new ones in the crowd of around 400 people, obviously enjoyed the festivities, including the “Star Spangled Banner” which was “kazoo-ed” by all! The horseshoe tournament, kids casting contest, American Legion parade, the new “Wine-O-Plinko” Game, kids free raffle and the Giant CIFFI Raffle, kept folks entertained. Hamburgers, hotdogs and trimmings plus decadent desserts fit the July 4th mode and the excellent weather all made for an enjoyable day.
A few items have been mailed since the first of the year...the 2014 CIFFI Update brochure, the Derby Postcard and your 2014 Membership cards that was purchased at the 2014 ISE Show in Sacramento.
