Montanans are some of the few fortunate persons can enjoy that prime fish, fo'r it is f o u n three or f o u r sections of this n this state a grayling catch is not so as it used to be for the reason that fish sts were unable to rear grayling to sizes vhere they could survive in the streams. ,ime those experts could bring grayling only :o the "fry" stage in the hatcheries and they were released they were prey for larger fish. A few years ago Charles Fuqua, superintendent superintendent of the U. S. Bureau of fisheries station Bozeman, discovred how to rear grayling to a length of six inches. Last week when of these almost extinct game fish were n Montana waters there was completed the argest planting of grayling larger than fingering size in the history of fish culture. This, of course, is good news to the angler, 'or there are now f i n e prospects for fishing in the near future after some lean fears. Mr. F u q u a , for his research and n rearing them, deserves the thanks of all ;hose sportsmen, who like to catch them.
