NS & NL Fishway Updates

Nova Scotia: The Morgan Falls Fishway on the LaHave River reports today 122 grilse and 46 salmon – a great increase from last Friday’s numbers.

Newfoundland: DFO now has their NL counting page up and running, although the numbers are as of June 12, and it needs to be remembered that Newfoundland runs tend to be later. Among the interesting numbers:

  • Harry’s River: 65 this year vs. 14 in 2010
  • Exploits River: 62 this year vs. 172 in 2010
  • Conne River: 238 this year vs. 178 in 2010

There is nothing yet for the Torrent or Western Arm Brook up the Northern Peninsula.

Note that officially three of the five most productive Atlantic salmon rivers in North America are in Newfoundland – The Exploits, Gander and Humber.
