KEWAUNEE, WI (WTAQ) - If you want to see how baby fish are born and raised, you might want to attend open houses this month at two DNR fish egg collection facilities. 

The first event is planned for Saturday at a fishery on the Kewaunee River in Kewaunee County.

Visitors can play casting games, adopt sturgeon, and print fish-related T-shirts. 

The other open house is set for a week from Saturday on the Root River in Racine. 

Guided tours are planned -- along with demonstrations of spawning procedures, casting, and knot and fly tying. At both places, visitors can watch crews collect fish eggs from Lake Michigan salmon and trout. 

More information is available at the DNR's Web site.
