Pleased but irritated .......

Recently I  posted on here showing the completing of our fish pass. Following its completion there have been many anxious hours waiting to see if fish can use it.   I am now assured by several members that fish have been seen ascending the ladder.  Something that I am very pleased indeed to report but bloody irritated that despite visiting it on a number of occasions I am yet to see anything using it......



What I want now is some pics of fish jumping out of that top box.....

Looks a good job Andy?

I don't see how it can work except in a full spate unless there is another lower stage to be added to make entry easy. It is also likely to be an efficient heron feeder. The right thing to do is remove the weir.

Paragraph 33 of the Magna Carta made weirs in "all England" illegal.

Richard

It is a spate stream , fish only run it when there is a substantial spate. As for the height of the first box , There are higher falls further downstream.
