Title: Fishery survey of the Doniford Stream 1994
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
This fishery survey of the Doniford Stream was undertaken during September 1994. The river was last surveyed in November 1983 when a number of sea trout were found in the lower reaches of both the Doniford Stream and its major tributary the Monksilver Stream or River Villet. In this latest survey two new sites were added to represent the headwaters and the number of sites downstream was somewhat reduced. It was hoped that sea trout would have entered the system before the survey took place. A very dry autumn resulted in very low flows and no sea trout were found at some of the sites where they were expected. Survey of two sites was therefore delayed until flows increased. In the event when the rain came it was unceasing and the sites became unfishable.
