Status of Run

2012 was great year in Santuit- adults are currently exiting the run.

Mills River- huge difference from last year, Barnstable has been working over the past 1.5 years to bring this run back to life, so it was great to see the counts jump up as they did this year, adults are also starting to leave this run.

Wequaquet- we had initial scare at this run because we were about 6 inches shy of normal rainfall when the run began, luckily, the fish waited until we got some rain and are currently running up to Wequaquet (finally!) and in large numbers, there are also some adults that made it in earlier in the season that are now leaving the pond.

We have re-habbed from Mill Pond to the railroad tracks in our West Barnstable run and will be doing the remainder of the work this Fall. We are hoping to get this run on the state's re-stocking list for 2013/2014 if possible.

We are hoping we might be able to start a counting program for the Centerville River/Wequaquet Run next year
