Today was the first opportunity to see the new weirs with a decent flow going down the river. Everything looked as it should and there is no reason why salmon and trout shouldn’t be able to pass over both weirs and the falls at this height of water.
Poaching won’t be easy during these conditions and would be an extremely hazardous activity. Anyone trying to interfere with the fish passes would be highly conspicuous. The bailiffs will have to keep an eye on this for the next few months and make sure that there is a regular presence in this area especially during elevated flows.
