New Auke Creek Weir Counts

It has been a busy week at Auke Creek.  Over 10,000 smolts have emigrated in the last seven days (4,002 coho and 6,907 sockeye).  Dolly Varden counts also remain very high, with 4,246 fish in the last week alone.  The total Dolly migration this year to date (7,699 fish) is already the fourth highest in the modern weir era and the largest yearly count since 1997.  Daily counts can be accessed by hitting the "Auke Creek Weir Counts" link near the top of the page.

Auke Creek Wier Counts

The Dollies and cutthroat trout are on the move!

~ Roger Harding

"Smolt outmigration is underway at Auke Creek.  Counts are still relatively low, but should build quickly with the moderate flows and warm temperatures we are experiencing.  Dolly Varden emigrant counts have been very high over the last week, with 2,294 outmigrants in the last seven days.  The pink fry migration is nearly finished and cutthroat counts remain low, but steady."

You can find the latest wier count on the links at the top of the page or access them here.
