We await the submitted catch returns for 2019 from the District Salmon Fishery Boards to arrive. Once we have them, we will compile the data and produce updated charts.
I’ve included the charts for each DSFB controlled river showing catch returns and 5 year rod catch averages between 2000 and 2018. It is the 5 year average that the Government uses to feed into the conservation measures and categorisation (but using data submitted direct to MSS rather than Boards). Theoretically the DSFB data and MSS data should be the same but there are almost always discrepancies… which is most accurate? We have no idea!
