When looking at 3 years of charts from the fish counting stations at Daguerre Dam on the Yuba, each month there were two very marked spikes in fish moving across the ladders. I matched them to lunar cycles and they perfectly overlay the full moon and the new moon. This is far from any tidal influence and didn't matter if the skies were clear, smokey or cloudy. Smolt migration reportedly occurs in strong synchrony with the full and new moon high in river systems where tidal effect would be nill.
How does this equate with fishing? Everyone has a theory. I just fish.
