Hot Creek Trout Fest 2013 - Volunteers needed
The California Department of Fish & Game is looking for volunteers to support their Hot Creek Trout Fest to be held in June. 
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is organizing Trout Fest 2013, a one day kids fishing event, at the Hot Creek Hatchery on June 29th. Jim Erdman, a CDFW biologist, is looking for volunteers. This is the first year Trout Fest will be held at the Hot Creek Hatchery and the organizers hope to make this an annual event. Please let your members know about this terrific event. If any members have questions about volunteering tell them to email me and I’ll try to answer any and all questions, otherwise they can contact Jim directly at his email or number below. This is a great opportunity to spend a few days in the eastern Sierras, get in some quality fishing, and help out some kids in a worthwhile project. This is the kind of event that kids remember for the rest of their lives.

Thanks folks,
