Hi all,
The Fall 2010 Chinook salmon spawning season is upon us!  The U.S Fish and
Wildlife Service, California Department of Fish and Game, the Yurok Tribe,
Hoopa Valley Tribe, and U.S. Forest Service will have crews out on the
mainstem Trinity River on a weekly basis from now to December (and in
select tribs too in the case of the U.S. Forest Service).  We surveyed the
river September 7 last week from Lewiston Dam to the Old Bridge to look for
early Spring Chinook spawners.  We saw no complete redds, though there was
a little test digging.  That will change soon!  This week we'll survey from
Lewiston Dam to Cedar Flat.  We'll post weekly updates this season as we
did last year and those will be available on the Arcata Fish and Wildlife
Office Fisheries webpage.

Below is link to a flier you'll soon see physically posted at river access
points and various places of business along the Trinity corridor.

Say "Hi" if you see us out there.  Here's to hoping for a great spawning
season!
Cheers,
Charlie
