Morrison Creek Smolt Fence Week # 2

iss_scott-cHoles in the smolt fence have been found and plugged, as a result numbers have started to climb. In the case of the chum fry they have started to soar, mornings of 1200, and as of today 5000 fry went through the traps. Add to this coho smolts numbering over 200 and you have a very active morning of counting. Thanks, Dave and Jack. We have had 4 lamprey in and around the boxes, one was a 6cm ammocoete, and the other three were spawned out adult richardsonii. Coho fry numbers are low this spring reflecting the poor returns last fall. With the forecast calling for warmer weather we are expecting to experience substantial volumes of fish and other creatures.
