This is not a big deal and I know it will not impact many.  On the other hand, I want to spread the word:

Grove Trout Rearing Station to close temporarily for maintenance

The Grove Trout Rearing Station near Royal in Antelope County will close to visitors May 28-30 for maintenance and inspection of the diversion pond.

“While the maintenance takes place, staff will be using heavy equipment, and public safety is taken into consideration for this closure,” said Fish Production Manager Joe Cassidy. “Recreationists and anglers may experience cloudy water uncharacteristic of East Verdigre Creek below the facility during this procedure.

“While this is a necessary part of the operation of the facility, we want this to be brief and resume public visitation,” Cassidy said. “We thank visitors and anglers for their understanding.”

Grove Trout Rearing Station operates year-round to raise rainbow and cutthroat trout. The fish production area and visitor shelter generally are open to the public daily from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central time.
