Take Care When Releasing Your Salmon!!

posted in: Salmon Fishing Reports & News | 0

Thank you to all those who have sent us photos of their catches. It has been a great week on the river. However, a number of our members have expressed concerns on how some of these fish are being handled before release. Please please ensure that the salmon remains in the water while being unhooked prior to release. A quick photo can be taken while supporting the salmon with both hands and lifting for a few seconds above the water level. Time out of the water should be kept to an absolute minimum and when a net is being used, this should remain in the water while unhooking. NEVER take the fish up onto the bank and NEVER carry the fish by its tail.
