Minutes of the March 27, 2012 meeting of the Fish Creek Atlantic Salmon Club;
Jim Lawler called the meeting to order at 8:15 PM
Gene Carey read the minutes of the February meeting

Jim Morris suggested that he knows someone in Hamilton who can print a sign on Tyvec for the purpose of posting along the stream so people can be made aware of our stocking.  Gene asked if the inks would be water and ultra-violet resistant.  Jim will inquire.
Jim Lawler then talked about the Vermont fish.  We will get whatever is left after the Tunison Labs get there fish.  He will call Kevin in Vermont to see when the fish will be ready, which is expected to be end of May time frame.
Jim Lawler added that our fish need to be 4 centimeters long before they can be tested.  All of our fish have hatched but still have the egg sacks attached.
Spey Nation recently sent us a flyer saying that the entire funds raised by them, after expenses, would go to our club.
Tom Schneider said that the big hatchery sign was done and installed by the hatchery. (See attached photo)  A small sign to be put out by the road is not done yet.
Upcoming Shows:
April 14 – Herb Phillipsons, Utica
April 21 – Mohawk Valley TU, New Hartford Ice Rink
May 2 – Oneida Lake Association, CNS High School
On April 3rd, soon after coming home, I went to the hatchery to see how this year’s Atlantic salmon are doing.  I got a candid photo of Dave Miller inspecting the fish in one of the 14 egg hatching baskets. (see attached photo.  It is nice to see this dedication in caring for our fish.)  The eggs are all hatched and the fish are swimming and still living on thr remains of their egg sacks.  This is the stage where our last year’s crop was when the hatchery was flooded on April 28, 2011.  It looks like this year’s fish are about 3 to 4 weeks ahead of last year’s.  It will soon be time to remove the hatching baskets and start feeding them in the tanks.  So, all is well at the hatchery, and if our performance and good luck continues, we should be stocking a lot of fish in June.

Respectfully submitted,
Arley Morey, Club Secretary
