Yesterday we were on the Duisk (Stinchar catchment) continuing with the Government surveys. Despite the rain we got another couple completed with reasonable numbers of juvenile salmonids recorded at both sites. The heavy afternoon and overnight rain has swept away (pun intended) any chance of getting out and about today but with any luck we will complete these surveys by the end of the week.
The Duisk is a charming little river and productive too. We don’t get the opportunity to survey this part of the catchment very often as the DSFB don’t have any jurisdiction over this watercourse. However we do know the watercourse and it always produces good juvenile salmon numbers. Another good day out surveying inspire of the rain.
