View Full Version : electro survey results

09-24-2007, 09:57 PM
Hey there, I was just wondering if anyone on the message board helped out in the electro shocking on friday and saturday? If anyone knows the results maybe they could post them. I know the fishing report touched on them a little bit, but i was really wondering how they truly compaired with previous years surveys. Was it the medium sized fish that took the biggest hit this summer( which is my own theory...) or the just all sizes in general. Im also wondering how the brownies held up. They are much more tolerant than the bows, and im wondering what the survey has to sday about thier numbers. Anyway, if any one knows, please post it for us who are wondering how it went. Thank you.

This was my first time electrofishing so i couldn't tell if what i was seeing was good or bad, but the biologist that were there said pretty bluntly that the trout took a hit. as far as numbers go though i cant help you out in that department.

Were you partaking of the survey on Saturday? If so, when did you guys go through the gate at Cades Cove?

I was running late and got there at 7:35, but I didn't see anyone other than bikers. I hit the snooze one too many times I suppose.

Sorry if you guys were short handed.

Does anyone have any idea when and where data from the electroshocking can be obtained? I am very curious as to the impact this years conditions have had on the fish population.
