Increase in Salmon numbers

Post by chris s sladden »

I'm really glad about this but hope it wont equate to increased BS and hassle as well!

"It credited restricting fish taken from the rivers as part of the improvements."

So the fact that they're putting them back rather than taking them home to eat would appear to be the main factor.

I see this as good news - these figures went up despite canoe/kayak activities - surely that must help in our case that we don't affect the fishing....

Of course not! The numbers would have been far higher still if you louts hadn't been splashing about in your brightly coloured boats !

So years of increased paddling on a popular river equates to an increased number of catches.... Maybe the figures are up BECAUSE of canoe / kayak activities and therefore such activities should be encouraged on every river!
