Trinity River Spawn Survey 9/30/2016
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 our crews mapped 68 redds (81 total for the year) in the Reaches from Lewiston Dam to Pigeon Point. The graph below is clipped from our weekly report (limited to the river upstream of Cedar Flat).
Redd numbers should start to pick up soon, as fall-run Chinook make it to the spawning grounds.
