Students Help Stock Dry Bridge Pond

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

Some kids are putting fish into a pond.

The fish in Dry Bridge Pond can't reproduce because they can't get to any streams, so every year students help FWP officials stock the pond.

This year, Hedges Elementary got the honor. They poured thousands of Rainbow Trout from hatcheries in Creston, Jocko, and Murray Springs into the pond one bucket at a time.

Usually, it was two kids to a bucket since they were so heavy.

"These ponds are a great opportunity to get out, especially early in the season, before the high country opens up," said Mark Deleray, the regional fisheries manager.

Dry Bridge is a family fishing pond, meaning adults can't keep anything they catch here, but kids can keep one fish.
