William H. Rowe and a colleague clear the trout breeding pools at the Clear Spring Trout Ponds. Breeding pools stretched on either side of the hatchery building for over one mile. The pools were cleaned every other day to fight fungus and parasites. Traps were set along the side to catch predators such as heron, kingfishers, and rats.Show Details
