Steelhead Distribution

Posted on 29th August 2014 at 09:05

The final distribution of excess steelhead from the Lake Merwin Fish Hatchery is planned for this afternoon at the Help Food Warehouse in Longview. Lower Columbia CAP says that they will have 300 fish available for distribution, starting at 12:30 this afternoon. To be eligible to take part, you will need to present a USDA commodities card, or a Washington EBT card. It’s emphasized that Oregon EBT cards cannot be accepted. You will also need to bring a plastic bag, a cooler or some other sort of container for carrying your fish. Again, this is the last steelhead distribution of the year from the Lake Merwin Hatchery, and will take place in the 12th Avenue parking lot behind the CAP offices on Commerce Avenue in Longview.
