Medium flow and crystal clear
Great to hear and see the babble of riffles. One more good rain and we may see our coho appear to spawn ..... Creek almost ready!
5 separate Frisky Fry 'hit' snow berry THUS relaxing thoughts of Sediment issue 3 weeks ago.
I didn't have equipment with me on site ( just out for a bike ride!!)
Very Low flow caused the sediment to remain in stream for several days. No dead fish seen!
extreme low water level
minnow 'hits' w/ blackberry 'flower ball'! .... nice sign that winter spawners have offspring (coho or cutthroat)
several fry in upstream shallow pool > tent caterpillar infestation dropping Everywhere!
Turbidity from melting snow runoff > same as Colquitz R.
Melting snow & rain have raised the creek level & flow dramatically.
Enough rain last week allowed some Coho/ Cutthroat spawners to migrate up the riffles and use gravel beds that we've introduced to the Creek.
