S. fish hatchery in Bridger canyon. Grayling, considered by many anglers as the royalty of the finny- tribe, previously have been planted in streams and lakes shortly after they were hatched, when they were about one-quarter of an inch long. Next spring 21.000 Grayling, averaging averaging four inches long, will be planted In southwestern Montana's fishing waters. Under the old system mortality of fish planted «as extremely high because of their m i n u t e size, Fu- q u a said. They were prey to larger fish in large numbers. During the last summer th hatchery received 300.000 Graylln eggs from Grebe lake in Yellow stone park. About 2 0 0 , 0 0 0 , wer planted In the Madison and Ga latin rivers Immediately aflo h a t c h i n g and ( h e 000 were held at tlie hatrliery her fur reeding. Later several thou sand t'ingerlings were planted I the G u l l a t i n national forest and 10,000 placed In Plshkun res ervolr by the state game and fish department. Several thousand oth ers were transferred to the hatch e r y f a t Ennis. The fish in the ing ponds at the Eozeman hatcher, are about two and one-half Inche long. This history of fish culture re cords very few Instances wherre Grayling have been fed artlficia food with any degree of success l r uqua said. Although small experi ment lots have responded to th feeding of minute aquatic organ Isms gathered from lakes, such methods were not suitable for th feeding of large numbers. Previ ously, attempts to use artificia food ended in failure. BE of
