Next up: Fish for science at Sepulveda Dam on Nov. 20
Update: because of permit issues, this event has been postponed until Friday, Nov. 20.
Attached please find the info for the upcoming fishing day.
We caught more fish in dip nets on our exploratory mission last Friday than we have at all other events. They were juvenile tilapia, but still!
We still need 2-3 more volunteers at least but the more the merrier! Please spread the word!
If some of the anglers want to bring kayaks and or floatie chairs along with their rods, there is a cool place under Burbank to send them.
We will also have lots of seine nets available.
Thanks to Bill for setting this up! thanks to all of you for your help in making it happen! This should be really fun!
If you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you the rest of the info.
