Approximately 500 pounds of fish were planted in Rough Creek on March 2 with the help of local community members and the Mineral County Advisory Board.

It was a sunny day in Nevada on March 2 as members of the community along with members of the Mineral County Advisory Board to Manage Wild life came together to help the Nevada Department of Wildlife plant fish in Rough Creek.

They met at the turn off to the headwaters of Rough Creek by Carl Glasow, NDOW Fish Hatchery Technician II with the truck loaded with approximately 500 pounds of fish to be planted in Rough Creek. They ranged in size from six to nine inches in length.

Local fish historian, Frank Barcellos filled Glasow in on information about Rough Creek who was there for his first time. He enjoyed all the information Barcellos gave him.

As a reminder, new fishing licenses were available for purchase starting March 1. Before fishing any waters in Nevada you must have a currant fishing license in your possession.

Thank you to those who took off from work to join the fish planting project.
