Mother Nature flexed her muscles last night and shut us down for the moment.  The rain, plus the debris being brought down from the trees, increased the volume enough that the water was pouring over the top of the fence this morning and broke the point of the water/fish funnel away from the walls.  It was hard enough to get the fence together with low flow so we are shut down until the flow diminishes enough to get the fence back together.   Just when things were getting interesting as we had over 300 coho smolts in the box this morning.   We also had a lovely 14 cm cutthroat trout in the box this morning.  I hope this was the absolute maximum number of fish we will ever have in the box as our count ended up being well over 23,000 fry plus the others.

Back with a Bang!
