Three (3) new salmon captured this week; two MSW returns from smolt stocking and a naturally-reared grilse. Water temp increased >23C this week. Discharge has steadily declined post-Elsa but remains around 150 CFS which is roughly 30 CFS above median. A couple photos attached. First, the location of our trapping facility at Stillwater Dam, Narraguagus River, Cherryfield, Maine (pictured @ 154 CFS). Second, a male MSW return patiently awaiting biological sampling in the fishway trap.
