Trout in the Classroom Update

March 1, 2013

As I posted on January 31, Waterville Valley Elementary School students are enjoying participating in the Trout in the Classroom (TIC) program.  TIC is a NH Fish and Game Department Watershed Education Program and is supported by Waterville Valley’s Rey Center and the Pemigewasset Chapter of  Trout Unlimited.

Waterville Valley resident, Ray Kucharski, a member of the Pemi TU, author and local fishing legend, reports that “…in early February a few of the trout eggs began to hatch. The young brook trout, referred to as Alevin at this stage, remain attached to their egg sack and are inactive at this time.

“The Waterville Valley Elementary School students calculated the swim-up date to be the end of April based on 38 degree water. It would be ideal to have them ready for release in May. The fry will be released in the Mad River.”
