OUT-MIGRATION ABOUT TO START
Volunteers have begun daily checks of a smolt trap in the lower creek and, as soon as they start seeing smolts, they will add a trap in the upper creek. The coho smolts they catch and release are indicators of how healthy creek habitat is for juvenile salmon.
This research began 11 years ago, supported entirely by volunteers. Last year they documented 141 smolts leaving the creek for two years in saltwater. The traps will stay in place until the end of May.
