Kevin Holladay, at the NM Department of Game and Fish has asked for some help this year from New Mexico Trout at the Albuquerque Outdoor Expo from August 16-18 at the City of Albuquerque Shooting Range Park out on the west mesa. He would like help at the catfish pool for Friday afternoon, 12:00pm – 4:00pm as well as Saturday and Sunday, 9:00am – 5:00pm. These are the hours that EXPO will be open to the public for the weekend. Friday, most of the events will be open to Department staff, volunteers and several school and youth groups. We anticipate about 200 youth to attend on Friday.
The catfish fishing pool is one of the most popular activities. There are also volunteer opportunities with the fly and spin casting stations, and fly-tying. Needed are about 2 people on Friday and 3 or 4 people each day-Saturday and Sunday. Folks can take a half day or all day shift. It is a lot of fun for the entire family. All volunteers are invited to the catered recognition BBQ dinner on Saturday evening at the dining hall.
If you would like more information you can contact Colleen Welch at 505-476-8119 or Kevin Holladay at 505-476-8095.
