Staff from the USFWS Columbia Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office conducted a fisheries evaluation in three fishing ponds on Mingo National Wildlife Refuge at the end of October. The crew used hoop nets and electrofishing to help analyze the fish population. Largemouth bass and bluegill were the common species sampled and all fish were returned to the ponds. Refuge staff will use the survey results and management recommendations to provide optimal fishing resources to the public.
