With the floods over Christmas 2020 which went up to 1.52m above local datum and then further floods through January and up to 10th February 2021, a number of fish got stranded when the waters receded. On the 17th February Nigel Sprowell and I went fishing to see what was stranded and is a couple of hours had removed about 1200 fish and returned them to the river. A further 300 were also returned to the river a week later and at the work party at the end of the month an eel was caught and put back in the river.
