The Lumberton High School Fishing Team took a break from fishing to learn about fish hatcheries. They took a trip to Lake Sam Rayburn fish hatchery on Friday, April 21. It was their first time to visit and they learned about the fish that the hatchery produces and the process.
LHS Fishing Team Advisor, Bryan Thomas said, “We toured the facility and got an understanding of how the state agents get information about the lakes. They explained how they do surveys on area lakes to see what the fish population is like. Also we were told about the economic impact fishing has on the areas they are located.”
The students also built 26 fish habitats that will be put in Lake Sam Rayburn.
