Hey Everyone,


Despite extremely warm temperatures salmon keep coming!    On 6/21 we opened the gates at Milford for free passage due to high temperature and reverted to video counts.  Counts over the last week have not been adjusted for in-season recaptures based on PIT Tag, Radio Tag, or proration.    Counts will be adjusted as data become available.


Salmon count is up to 1040!   110 fish have been sent to Craig Brook National Fish Hatchery for Broodstock.  930 fish have been released to the river.


A few fresh shad continue to trickle in.  Many post-spawn shad have been observed passing downstream. 


Until next time...
