So the fishlift at Paradise dam may be working?

Plectroplites ambiguus ? Bill needs to update his references.
One for Dale, first case I have seen of some worthwhile data from a tagged yella stocked outside its natural range. Good example of why they should NOT be stocked in the Burnett system.

Thats right, it should be "yelerus Fishus"  :o

Probably to late if it can go upstream like that Steve, they will be making babies in there for sure!

I think there needs to be more than one to make babies.

Anybody know Peter Luck?

There would be more than one.
Given that only minute fraction of yellas in the system have been tagged most likely a considerable number would have followed their natural instinct and made the same journey upstream.
