Salmon numbers

On the rise?

Reports are continuing about the increased numbers of salmon entering our rivers. Good news?. Not really because the increase is the Pacific pink salmon. More and more reports are continually appearing about anglers and netsmen catching this rogue fish in our territory. The bad news if you catch one is that they are not nice eating So be warned. If you catch one of these rogue fish the EA request if you can contact them and pass the fish onto them with details of where and when caught.

The good news on our local front shows members are still catching the odd salmon and sea trout over the last week with the best salmon known to us lately coming in at 15lbs from our Hesleyside beats. There does appear to be a fair number of fish around but catching them is proving frustrating. Never mind, as they say, tight lines.
