After the recent release of our coho smolts we clean out the rearing pond at Hoy Creek beside the hatchery. It's always a surprise to see what's living at the bottom! The critters are released into the creek. The pond will soon house our 8500 coho fry. We found 59 crayfish, and lampreys, caddisfly nymphs and other invertebrates!

The Hoy / Scott Creek Watershed Society's annual Salmon Leave Home event was held on May 3rd to celebrate the release of our coho smolts. Families came out to help release our smolts to the creek so they can begin their journey to the ocean: Hoy Creek → Scott Creek → Coquitlam River → Fraser River → Strait of Georgia / Pacific Ocean!

Thanks to everyone who came by to make this event such a success. Big THANKS to Joyelle Brandt Creations for wonderful musical entertainment; and the CKPM 98.7 team with the Morrey Nissan Community Cruiser for their most generous support; and the Gleneagle Secondary Talons for the fabulous gardening activities! See you at Salmon Come Home this October!
