High river levels make fish lives easier

Salmon making their way to the Besadny Anadromous Fish Facility in Kewaunee will have almost as easy of a time as you do getting to this weekend’s open house. High river levels have helped the fall salmon run start earlier than usual, though facility manager Mike Baumgartner says he expects about the same number of fish to make their way there for processing and egg collection. Baumgartner believes the fish that do make it will be in much better shape than years’ past.

Baumgartner says the facility will be the primary egg collection site for the region this fall since high lake levels will not allow the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to spawn chinook salmon from its Strawberry Creek location in Sturgeon Bay. The Besadny Anadromous Fish Facility hosts its open house this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
