Ama Sqit Nsneknukwa7,
Birkenhead Sockeye Counting Fence was fish-tight at 11AM on Saturday, August 28th, 2010. Only 15 fish through in the first 36 hours, so I think we got in ahead of them. Site looks good, and the cool weather has the river coming down nicely. A good crew and a good start.
We are also conducting Chinook Salmon Assessments by way of River Bank Walks in the upper reaches of the Birkenhead River. Our Chinook peak spawn Bank Walks will take place on Monday September 6, Monday September 13 and finally on Monday September 20.
I’ll do my best to keep you updated weekly.
