We’ve sent out tracking boats the past few weekends, and little has changed with the status of the tracked fish. We are still unable to locate the following: Nigel, Gil, Rusty, Dixie, Sven, Harvey, Ole, and Lloyd. We do have good fixes on 12 other fish, though no substantial movements have been observed. It is suspected that #022 (Wanda) is dead, and has been for a while. Check out everyone’s locations with Follow Our Fish!
The Mark & Recapture Study is progressing nicely, with about 200 fish tagged to date. There have been some remarkable fish caught so far this year, with 495mm, 480mm, and 475mm rainbows receiving tags. For those of you who speak in inches, these are 19-20″ fish.
Anglers have also noticed an increase in the number of fish in the 200-300mm (8-12″) class this year. Fewer small fish are being caught (less than 200mm), and more medium fish. This seems to be a nice trend and makes fishing more fun. Get out there while you can – we have about a month left in the study!
