SCDNR intern Sarah Armstrong shares how her interest in fisheries genetic research led to a summer job at the Walhalla State Fish Hatchery in Mountain Rest, where she helped raise thousands of brown, brook and rainbow trout on a day-to-day basis.
To cast a rod and catch a fish on an evening such as this was to be reminded, in the paraphrased words of my brother Hampton, that though the play of nature and life continues on all around us, for a brief moment I was allowed the privilege of connecting with it through line and lure, joining in the performance.
