Senator McCain Meets with Officials to Discuss Long-Term Solutions for Hatchery

Arizona Senator John McCain took officials from U.S. Fish and Wildlife, Arizona Game and Fish, and Mohave County to the Willow Beach Hatchery to discuss what needs to be done in the long run to fix the problems with the rainbow trout stocking program.  “Senator McCain has been instrumental in helping Mohave County bring back the stocking program,” Supervisor Buster Johnson stated.  The U.S. Fish &Wildlife Service decided to stop the stocking of rainbow trout at the Hatchery in December.  According to Johnson, the estimated economic loss to the region due to the stoppage would have been around $74 million per year.  “Our river communities depend on sport fishing.  It is a major economic driver for our county,” Johnson explained. During the meeting, Senator McCain spoke with officials to try and find out exactly how much money would be needed to fix the intake pipes that bring the cold Colorado River water into the tanks that hold the trout.  “Senator McCain has taken a real leadership role in helping us find the funds to ensure this valuable program doesn’t get stopped again,” Johnson said.  Senator McCain, the Arizona Game and Fish Department and Mohave County officials found a short-term solution this past spring in order to start the program back up.  “The Arizona Game and Fish Department provided roughly 21,000 juvenile rainbow trout to be raised and stocked through the...
