The Dakins Lake Fish Socking Fundraiser on Saturday, April 5th was a rousing success? Many club members attended. Ted Tedesco reported this past Friday that around $14,000 was raised.  

A list of spring activities at Story County Conservation has been posted in the News section.
I posted in the Documents section the fish recipes that member and Chef Stewart Hinerfeld used for preparing the fish at our club fish dinner this past November. They were all great recipes and hopefully you can use one or more of them. if you want copies of a particular recipe I could send them to you. Also, if you have any outstanding recipes for cooking fish please send them to me and I will post them.
