Fish Creek Atlantic Salmon Club
March Monthly Meeting
March 28, 2013
· Testing of Atlantic salmon from Ed Weed Fish Cultural Facility (Vermont)
Kennebec River Biosciences (testing lab) received approval from NYSDEC to test these fish using a two week virology test only. The test results were received March 28 and all four viruses tested for were negative.
· Club picnic.
The club decided last month that a picnic, open to the public, would be a good way to showcase our efforts and successes to local residents. Several locations were mentioned, Forest Park among them. Member Paul Wenham, President of the Friends of Forest Park, has reserved the Woods Pavilion in Forest Park for Saturday May 18. More details to follow.
§ Fish from Kevin Kelsey
Arrangements have been made to pick up the fish from Kevin Kelsey at the Ed Weed Fish Cultural Facility in Vermont. Jim Lawler and Larry Chismark will rent a 24 ft. stake rack truck from Ryder Truck Rental and pick up two oxygen cylinders with regulators from Haun Welding. The Rome Hatchery has offered us the use of two of their fish transport tanks and they will load them for us.
The plan is to drive up Friday and stay overnight at the hatchery. Saturday morning the fish will be loaded and brought back for stocking that afternoon. Due to the deep snow still on the Tug Hill, locations near Camden were selected.
· Trestle Road at the fishing access parking lot (W. Branch Fish Creek)
· Mechanic Street (V) Camden behind DPW (W. Branch Fish Creek)
· Quarry Road, left off River Road north of Camden (Mad River)
All these sites are very close to the creek, not much snow, good parking for truck.
§ Stocking will be Saturday afternoon April 6. Approximate arrival of stocking truck from Vermont is 2:00 PM at the Trestle Road site.
§ Herb Phillippson’s & Mohawk Valley TU – Sat. April 13 at the Herb Phillipson’s Store in New Hartford Shopping Center. Volunteers to man the club display and answer questions are Lloyd Northrup, Tom Schneider, Mike Mercoldie, Ted Collins, Paul Miller, and Jim Lawler.
§ Oneida Lake Association meeting is Wednesday May 1. Tony Buffa has requested that someone from the club give a 7 min. talk about the club history, its successes and failures.
§ Next Meeting April 25
Among the membership renewal forms was a note from Mohawk Valley TU member Bill Pfeiffer that his wife passed away recently. Bill has been an active and well liked member of the Fish Creek Atlantic Salmon Club and our thoughts are with him. A sympathy card was sent on behalf of the club.
