Carport Project at Satsop Springs

Mark's Metal Carports was the vendor on this job; the cement pad poured at Satsop after the carport was built. Bayview provided the cement and volunteers did the work.

Pond Excavation at the Mayr Hatchery

Here are some before, during, and after shots of the pond being scraped out by Kysar & Koistinen, Inc., our contractor who won the bid for the job. There are also photos of the dock being removed and placed over a creek where it will now be used as a bridge - which will be really nice during touring season. There was a grating project down at the spawning area. We will also be extending the cement at the current spawning shed and pad site.




Broodstocking Hole Repair at Satsop Springs

A broodstocking hole at the foot of our fish ladder at Satsop Springs Hatchery. In this area a bar builds itself every few years and needs to be dug out so the seine net is able to capture the fish during broodstocking season. Kysar and Koistinen was the contractor on this project.




Seine Net Preparation for Broodstocking

These are pictures of our volunteers preparing a seine net for the upcoming Broodstocking season.

Dike Repair Work at Satsop Springs

Recent major flooding throughout Grays Harbor nearly wiped out Satsop Springs. We have a dike to retain water from entering the facility and it got to about 6" from breaching. James Koistinen from Kysar and Koistinen, Inc. who was awarded the contract added an additional 2-3 feet to the dike. It should help prevent any future floodwater from entering the facility.


Pond 3 Excavation Work at Satsop Springs

James Koistinen of Kysar and Koistinen, Inc. did the excavation work on the ponds at Satsop Springs. These photos are of Pond 3. James dug out and created a new landing for seining trout. He also created a new parking area for the tank trucks used for trout planting each spring. The ponds have not been excavated since inception of the facility so it was very much needed.


Stump Lake Cleanup

This cleanup effort was brought together through the Task Force. Stump Lake is in constant jeopardy of being permanently shut down because of the dumping out there. A group of folks volunteered one day's worth of cleanup effort. You can clearly see how much trash was removed from the site. Also you can see some of the gorgeous trout being caught out there!


Carlisle Project at Onalaska High School

Just a few pics of the kids setting up the net pens on Lake Carlisle. Each student averaged over 200 volunteer hours for the Task Force. We held a BBQ, and they each received an award, a shirt, and a taskforce hat.
