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!

Very Low flow caused the sediment to remain in stream for several days. No dead fish seen!

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.
