PLAN TO OPEN FISH HATCHERY Oxygen Condition of Clear Lake Is Excellent, Lepley States. CLEAR LAKE, Feb. 26.--Preparations are being made for an early opening of the Clear Lake hatch'ery. this season because of early breaking up of ice on the lake. No orders from the state fish and game department have reached O. E. Hoel, manager in charge, as to the time for opening but the work of redecorating the interior of the building has begun. ' Owing to the warm winds and high temperatures the Ice has become honeycombed and with the first strong south or southwest wind the whole field of ice is expected to drift to the east shore. A large area is now open to the east and north shores of the lake where ice cutting has been prevalent. The ice harvest may have helped to keep the lake In such good condition for the fish, Mr. Hoel stated. C. R. Lepley, state expert, conducted a pathological survey on a number of lakes in this vicinity recently and stated that Clear Lake was in excellent condition. Mr. Lepley has made tests of the lake water as to the oxygen content for the survival of the fish during the winter months. At several places, the Twin lakes, Lizard lake, L'ake Cornelia, Twin Sister lake, (near Goodell), Crystal Lake, Eagle Lake and Pine lake similar surveys were made and oxygen pump's were Installed and resulted successfully. These pumps force air thru tubes below the ice operating 10 to 12 hours (daily. Use of such a device was found to be unnecessary in Clear Lake. "The survey," Mr. Lepley explained, "will inform the fish and game department which lakes are the 'fish lakes' and which are not. The records will be a great help in stocking Iowa lakes with fish £his year. When someone calls for a shipment of fish, the fish and game department may turn to the records of these tests and learn if the stocking of any certain lake is worth while." ICE NEARLY OUT OF CLEAR LAKE Expect 1930 Date to Almost Equal That of 1925 Record. CLEAR LAKE, Feb. "26.--During the last 15 years only one year has the ice left Clear Lake before March 11, according to the records of Vefn Peterson. It Is thot that this year's mark wlllvrun close to the record of 1925 when the ice field broke up on Feb. 23. In 1924 the field was not afloat until April 20.
