After the plentiful lunch, most everyone headed out for a tour of the Altmar Fish Hatchery which is quite an interesting experience if you've never been there. The DEC people who handle the operation of the facility are very highly qualified and know their business as they describe the operation of the hatchery and how they stock the salmon for the Salmon River.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
