Trinity River Spawn Survey Update from October 28, 2016 (11/9/2016)


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 weeks surveys were hampered by high flows and turbid water.  With a period of drier weather in the forecast, surveys downstream of Big Flat will be possible soon.
Fishery crews mapped 52 redds (1,380 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).
