Enjoy special tour of state trout hatchery

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will host a free, guided tour of its Bobby N. Setzer State Fish Hatchery in Transylvania County from 9-11 a.m. on Dec. 17.

The tour is being coordinated by the commission’s Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education. Pre-registration is required for this “behind the scenes” glimpse of how the commission operates a trout hatchery, from egg production to stockable-sized fish.

The program will cover coldwater conservation and trout management practices. The center is located off U.S. 276 in Transylvania County north of Brevard.
