The weak tide wont make a difference Barry. They run the river on the big tides towards the end of April / Early May. Once there up river then will be there regardless. They will be there for 4 -6 weeks and then they run back to the Ocean after they spawn.

I would say the recent rain scuppered you. The river will need less flow and colour.

hopefully not a silly question but will there be a prize for reports on each of the two nominated species? i.e. two prizes per month?
