Weir in the Water: Step by step

The weir is officially up and running for the 2014 season. With the water low in the Koeye we had an easy time getting everything in place and assembled.  Now we are just waiting for a splash of rain and the coming round of higher tides to get the fish on the move. So far we have tagged and passed 5 chrome bright wild sockeye above the fence. I thought it might be worth posting a handful of photos to show folks what the process of building the weir actually looks like. Turns out it’s actually quite simple, and miraculously all the panels and tripods from last year are still in good condition.
