Photo Friday: Big Mess

Big Mess of Debris at Rotary Screw Trap

Storms are typically good for fish, but bad for fisheries monitoring equipment… Today’s Photo Friday shows the surprise that greeted our crew during a recent visit to one of our rotary screw trap monitoring sites. Recent downpours have been prompting fish to move downstream, but have also washed a big mess of debris downriver. Needless to say, a rainy winter keeps our field crew plenty busy!
