This fishcam is located in the St Mary's River just downstream from the Soo Locks and Lake Superior. It must be a banner year for lamprey because most of the salmon either have them attached or they have scars from them. I was amazed at the size and number that there were of the blood-sucking snakes.

 

All major feeder streams into the Great Lakes have lamprey weirs and are treated annually with compounds that kill lamprey larvae. Apparently something must be amiss.

On opening day I spotted a mottled orange lamprey, as long and as thick as my arm, heading downriver abover the streamer weed on the Kentish Stour, just below Fordwich.

 

The EA guy I reported it to believed it to be a sea-lamprey.

Lots of those nasty beasties. Quite a few of the trout are carrying more than one. Yuck!!!!

Every so often I'll land a fish with lamprey attached. They don't let go until the fish thrashes around in the net, which for them is too late as they are on board by then. I always release them of course. In tiny pieces. ;)
