Almost ready G & G Construction Co., of Carthage, has made major improvements to the Roaring River State Park trout hatchery this winter. A new water supply structure, which connects the mouth of the spring to the hatchery, will prevent excess water loss. In addition, the hatchery pools were relined and the wall on the inside of the spring pool was renovated. Rocks, pic-tured at left, which were taken from the spring pool during renovation, will be use to restore deteriorating CCC rock work somewhere inside the park. The CCC rock falls and hatchery up-grades will be completed by the opening day of trout season on March 1. The new walkway, pictured below, which extends the fishing access platform around the base of the falls, has been completed. Contractors will finish the recon-struction of the south end of the falls by the end of February.
