The Department of Environmental Conservation is holding an open house this weekend to celebrate the 150th anniversary of its fish hatchery in Caledonia.
There will be free fishing clinics, hatchery tours, hot dogs and soda, fly-tying and casting demonstrations, and historical displays.
The open house is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
More than $640,000 in improvements are underway or planned at the hatchery. They include the addition of two fully outfitted stocking trucks, paving, painting and new indoor rearing tanks.
Caledonia Hatchery rears brown trout and rainbow trout including virtually all of the two-year-old brown trout used in DEC's stocking program for 13-15 inch trout.
