'Tis the season for turkeys, and trout!

It is the time of year for making plans for Thanksgiving meals and for taking advantage of opportunities to get out in nature and enjoy the colourful leaves. Fall is also time for more trout stocking (the Cheticamp River Salmon Association is involved with both spring and fall stocking).

Yesterday, members of the Cheticamp River Salmon Association were at bodies of water between St. Joseph Du Moine and the boundary of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, releasing thousands of healthy young sea trout. 

Special thanks to Association volunteer Joel Camus, for helping to release the fish, as well as coordinate the stocking.
