Hatchery Brook Trap

Postby popster » Wed Oct 23, 2019 4:04 pm

Fish are returning in good numbers to the Hatchery Brook trap. VTFG personnel were working yesterday collecting data from the returning Salmon and Browns with good results

I received this today from Nick Staats who is presently operating the Winooski Lift:
Salmon have showed up in big numbers at the
Grand Isle Hatchery Brook (348 salmon) and the Lamoille River (37 salmon) has seen an
increase also. The hatchery has been collecting salmon for egg-take later this fall.

The tally at the trap is currently at about 650 fish with more to go. This is good news.

Stopped by there today. The down stream pool had a good number of fish as well as a surprise visitor. A blue heron was positioned on the concrete pathway under the bridge. There were several dead salmon in the pool that I suspect had holes poked in them from this unlicensed fisherman. Upstream near the trap another heron was fishing the shallow pools I guess these guys can claim native rights. They have been here longer than we have.
