In an effort to understand fishery contribution and improve hatchery performance, the Curry

Anadromous Fishermen (CAF) will be sponsoring a coded wire tag (CWT) snout collection effort.

The group will have stations located at key fish cleaning areas and boat landings. The stations will have baggies and a place for volunteers to donate snouts from fish they caught that are missing the adipose fin. Also, there will be a small ticket to fill out for use in a raffle for some nice prizes. There will be two separate raffle drawings. One or Spring Chinook season, and a separate drawing for Indian Creek fish in the fall.
