Well, we were back up with a vengeance on Saturday, 9 May, with almost 26,000 chum fry in the boxes.  We were rather hoping that the surge that broke the fence would have washed most of the fry out of the system but they seem to be well-trained and decided to wait for us to count them before they headed out to sea.  Luckily the numbers seem to be going down finally.  We also had a big, 32 cm, cutthroat trout in the box but she wasn’t in very good shape and was found belly up at the evening count.
