I'm starting to think there is more to it, i use to totally agree with you however from talking to anglers that commonly fish the credit. i would say at least 3 in 10 real anglers have caught them , as well as report seeing schools of 20+ fish. the fish run at such a a variety of dates that they may very well be going up to the darn, dropping the eggs and leaving due to the poorly oxygenated darn water. there are to many catches out in the lake to suspect there is only a 250 atlantics in the lake (assuming they live 5 years). just food for thought but I'm starting to change my thoughts about it.

they're also using one of the weakest strains of atlantic salmon the Lahave strain. if they used a more hardy strain, maybe we'd see much higher numbers  return.  phase 1 ended in 2011, which saw 2.5 million fish released into 3 tribs, one had a wier dam setup on it for a year, the results were dismal at best

the credit has a steady return imo (as someone who fishes it almost daily). i would say nearly impossible to "plan" to catch one but you will get lucky once or twice a year during salmon runs

Have yet to catch a mature one. In my hometown trib I have to use a bigger bead or I catch 8-12" Atlantics all the time. Beautiful fish, hopefully I'll get a screamer on, maybe today.
