Trinity River Spawn Survey 11/17/2016

The US Fish and Wildlife Service along with the Yurok Tribe, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, US Forest Service, and Hoopa Valley Tribe have another weekly update for our Trinity River mainstem spawn survey.  The full update is posted on the Arcata Fish and Wildlife Fisheries webpage. 
This week crews mapped 124 redds (1,560 total for the year) in the Reaches from Lewiston Dam  to Cedar Flat. The graph below is clipped from the weekly report (limited to the river upstream of Cedar Flat).
The majority of Chinook Salmon have completed their spawning in the mainstem Trinity River. Coho salmon have been seen moving upstream and should begin spawning soon.
