Hi all,
The Arcata Fish and Wildlife Office along with the California Department of
Fish and Wildlife, Yurok Tribal Fisheries Program, Hoopa Valley Tribal
Fisheries Department, and the Shasta-Trinity National Forest have kicked
off our fall 2013 salmon spawning survey for the mainstem Trinity River.
 Throughout the season (now till mid-December) we'll be posting weekly
updates at the Arcata Fish and Wildlife Office fisheries page:
 http://www.fws.gov/arcata/fisheries/default.htm

On September 5, we conducted a training day for all of our field crew and a
survey of reach 1 (Lewiston Dam to Old Bridge).  We observed 1 redd and 7
carcasses.  The figure below is clipped from our first weekly report.
 We'll use this graph throughout the season to show how this year's running
total number of redds mapped between Lewiston Dam and Cedar Flat compares
to years previous (less the Pigeon Point run - reach 8).  With any luck,
maybe we'll push the upper limits this year!  Stay tuned....

This week (Sept 9 to 13) we are surveying from Lewiston Dam to the Pigeon
Point access just downstream of the North Fork.  Say "Hello" if you see us
out there!
