Fish Committee Report:

ANGLER OF THE MONTH-a few more fish have been turned in for recognition.  Please keep them coming.  I will try to have a recap for us at the November meeting.  

BIG STRIPER CONTEST-No more fish have been turned since the first two.  I even went fishing in Maine, but with no luck. 

LOBSTER BAKE DONATION-For the first time, at this year’s annual Lobster Bake, Mike Regan conducted a 50/50 raffle for the purpose of raising funds to support the nest spring Kid’s Fishing Derby.  The raffle turned $155 for the Derby.  Thanks so much Mike! 

FALL CLUB POND STOCKING-A fall stocking of the Club Pond will be done on Wednesday, October 9th, at approximately noon.  The mix of fish will be mostly brook trout, with a small amount of Tiger Trout.  Size range will be 10” to 14”.  The pond is in good shape, with a good supply of kivers, great to teach little kid’s how to fish.  There are also a few bass which should be removed if caught, since we are always trying to keep the pond as a coldwater trout pond.  Thanks to Peter Allaire for arranging the stocking and monitoring the health of the Pond.
