HAGUE-The Lake George Association is seeking volunteers with boats to aid in the annual stocking of landlocked salmon on Lake George.
Stocking will take place Tuesday, June 7, at the Hague public dock at 10 a.m.
Four volunteer boats are needed. Upon arrival at the dock, each volunteer will receive a big trash can to fill with lake water onboard their boat. Volunteers will then transfer salmon into the trash can from the DEC's stocking truck. Next, volunteers will drive out into deeper water to release the salmon.
"It is a lot of fun to stock the fish around the Lake. Hard work, but a lot of fun seeing those thousands of 5 - 7 inch salmon with brilliant colors swim away from the boat after being put in the lake," said John Schaninger, past president and current member of the Lake George Fishing Alliance.
Volunteers are asked to contact Emily DeBolt at the Lake George Association at 668-3558.
