Trinity River Spawn Survey 12/9/2015


“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 26 redds (1,625 total for the year) in the Reaches from Lewiston Dam to Cedar Flat. The graph below is clipped from our weekly report (limited to the river upstream of Cedar Flat).
Salmon spawning as slowed down to a crawl. The few redds that crews are finding are presumably from Coho Salmon. Two more weeks of surveys and we crews will call the 2016 season complete.”
