Waskish Fish Hatchery

Out for a stroll at our campground along the Tamarac River this evening and saw this old fish hatchery from the 1940’s. I wish they could set it up for tours. I settled on peeking in the windows. It was used to raise Walleye fry to ship all over the country. One of the reasons we love his kind of travel is discovering these out of the way places from our history. Waskish, Minnesota on Red Lake.

Aisles and aisles of these glass jars for eggs to hatch
The jars were flipped over and fresh aerated water water continually added. The heavy eggs stayed at the bottom and excess water overflowed out
Lake water pumped into the hatchery
