Smolt trapping at Catrine

  Over the weekend it appeared as though the smolt run was really starting to build with 26 and then 57 on Saturday and Sunday respectively. Following a small rise in water levels overnight and upwards of 50 fish in the trap yesterday morning, Muir and I headed to Catrine with high expectations of many smolts…..we were wrong! Only a handful today and so we’ll wait with bated breath until tomorrow. With a cold winter our countryside seems to be two weeks behind schedule, time will tell if this is the same for our smolts.   It’s fantastic to see…
