LDAC 2015 Catch Return Summary

The season saw a very encouraging increase in the total of rod-caught salmon year-on-year, rising from 33 in 2014 to 93 in 2015, up 282%.
Sea trout increased from 253 in 2014 to 268 for the 2015 season, a rise of 6% year-on-year.

On a river-by-river basis the Fowey fared better than the Lynher with a higher number of rod-caught salmon (55 in 2015 versus 25 in 2014, up 220%) with the river producing 150 sea trout versus 140 in 2014, up 7%.
The Lynher nonetheless saw a significant rebound in salmon numbers year-on-year; rising from 7 (in 2014) to 37 (in 2015), an increase of 528%; 2015 sea trout numbers also rose, reaching 73 (versus 64 in 2014), up 14%.
Some minor rivers saw a reduction in fish caught, most notable on the Inny where only one (1) sea trout was reported. Fourteen (14) sea trout were reported from the Seaton (up from 8 in 2014, an increase of 175%); probably reflecting a heavier fishing effort last season.
