  1. Has the fish pass been built because there are Salmon and Sea Trout are returning to the river because it has been cleaned up?

  2. Yes the river has been cleaned up - Friends of the Yarrow have been the push behind it all - 4 weirs have been altered to enable the salmon and sea trout to spawn, this year is the first year all four weirs have been open you might find the link below interesting.
