June 2012

Here we are at American Falls, Idaho. Beautiful park with warm clear weather. We arrived yesterday at Willow Bay Campground and Marina. Today we visited the fish hatchery in the City along the Snake River just below the American Falls Dam. What an experience! We met Ranger Sherry who took us on a private tour of their facility. We were able to see first hand how rainbow trout come to them in the form of eggs, are hatched and then cared for until they are released into the wild. We also toured the back country and talked to several of the "locals". We learned that their three most prevalent crops in this area are grain, beets and potatoes. We knew about the famous Idaho Potatoes but were surprised at the number of beet fields. A little fishing tonight and it's time to call it a day.
