Fish rescue

Locations: News Published

Something fishy took place in Sopris Park on the afternoon of Oct. 23. A number of fish were trapped in the ditch after it was turned off for the season and only a small amount of water was left when Mitt Farmer noticed them. Farmer told Cindy Sidlowski and they called in Rory Rehbeck’s expertise. The three managed to come up with a plan to get the trapped fish out of the ditch with nets, put them in a water-filled tub and return them to the river. Most of the fish were small but the next day, they returned a 20-inch trout to the Roaring Fork — and that ain’t no fish story! Photo by Jane Bachrach
