SWCD taking orders for stocking fish

The Fulton Soil and Water Conservation District is currently taking orders for the annual fish fingerling distribution program for stocking ponds.

Species offered for sale are bluegill, channel catfish, largemouth bass, redear sunfish, yellow perch, fathead minnows, hybrid bluegill, Koi, and Triploid White Amur. Deadline to order is May 13 with the pick-up on Thursday, May 16, at the Fulton County Fairgrounds. Participants will be notified of their pick-up time after all orders are received.

Bring containers such as a trash can or a five-gallon pail, each lined with a new trash bag. When tied at the top, the bags enable air to be added for the trip home. Fill containers no more than half full with pond water.
