EA Restormel Fish Counter - 2015 Jan to Aug

Here is the EA Counter Figures from the fish-counter at Restormel.

The Sea Trout run was bang-on the 10-year average and down on last year
Some large fish, probably large Sea Trout (hens) entered earlier this year.

As the year progresses we think of these larger fish as being predominantly Salmon, with the run starting slower than last year but building up to the 10-year average as we head into Autumn.

Fishing conditions have certainly been good - so it will be interesting to compare the run and rod catch figures for 2015.
