Hi all,
See the link in the bottom message to our latest update.

The weather got a bit uncooperative about midweek so the following Reaches
were not surveyed due to low visibility:
Reach 3 - Bucktail to Steelbridge
Reach 4 - Steelbridge to Douglas City Campground)
Reach 13 - Camp Kimtu to Roland's Bar
Reach 14 - Roland's Bar to Weitchpec

It's really too bad we couldn't get the lowest two reaches surveyed ; there
were 108 new redds in the Hawkins Bar to Camp Kimtu stretch alone.
Upstream, there are more Coho Salmon beginning to show in our carcass data,
especially upstream of Bucktail.

Next week's report may reflect non-surveyed sections again.  Flow at
Junction City today (12/6) is nearly double what it was yesterday and Sky
Ranch area was too turbid to survey.  Another round of moisture is forecast
to move through Tuesday evening and Wednesday.

We've mapped 3,728 redds this year as of last Thursday December 2.
Thanks for checking out our in-season reports!

Hi all,
It's that season again!  Fall 2010 salmon spawning surveys of the mainstem
Trinity River are underway.  These are conducted collaboratively by the
Arcata Fish and Wildlife Office, California Department of Fish and Game,
Yurok Tribal Fisheries Program, Hoopa Valley Tribal Fisheries Department,
and the Shasta-Trinity National Forest.  Our first within-season update for
the 2010 redd survey is available from the Arcata Fish and Wildlife Office
Website at the link below.  Click on "Trinity River 2010 Redd Survey
Update" near the bottom of the page.  We will make updates available
throughout this season at this same site.


Here's to hoping for a great run this year.
