MWC does OK by hatchery & spawn near

Hatchery manager Ed Hansen said the MWC tournament provided plenty of sauger for rearing fish at the LaSalle Fish Hatchery. That may be one of the greatest benefits from the annual tournament out of Spring Valley.

``We have about 340 females and a couple hundred males,'' Hansen said Monday morning as they worked on fish. ``We should definitely have enough for fingerling production and for some of the bigger lakes for fry. We should be in good shape.''

As to the spawn, he said the fish looked real close. As most years, only a few females were already spent. So depending on water levels, the next week or so should be near peak for sauger fishing.
