Out and About with the Spooner Garden Club
Spooner Garden Club members visited the Tommy G. Thompson Fish Hatchery in Spooner as part of the June meeting. The Governor Tommy G. Thompson Fish Hatchery is not only the state’s largest cool water facility, it is the world´s largest musky (muskellunge) hatchery. In many years, the hatchery produces more than half the muskellunge and walleye stocked throughout the state. With 46 rearing ponds, the facility may produce 200,000 to 2.5 million small walleye, 100,000 to 350,000 larger walleye, 35,000 to 60,000 large musky, and an average of 21 million white sucker fry in a typical year.
