Fish Creek weir counted over 10,000 fish on Monday
Yah, that's right! Over 10,000 fish crossed the weir Monday, even with dipnetting open! Escapement over 40k total. From what I observed last week, the creek was so low that fish were milling in the inlet, nosing into the tidal zone of the creek and retreating at low tide. Many fish caught at the mouth were quite blushed, supporting that theory. We had a heavy rainfall Sunday and Monday, which brought water levels in the creek up, and also put more creek water into the inlet. I wouldn't be surprised if many of the fish that were hanging at the mouth surged upstream with the higher, cooler water. In addition, the low tide's peak was quite high, and the high tide during the night time closed period was fairly high, providing extra water for fish passage.
Anybody try fishing on Monday?
