Great News. The footage captured on May 1, 2013 at a  Lower Putah Creek restoration site features juvenile Chinook Salmon. There was probably thousands of juvenile salmon in the first mile of the creek.


You can also see Three-spine Sticklebacks in the video.

It's June 11, 2016 and many of the Young-of-the-Year (juvenile salmon) remain in the certain areas of Lower Putah Creek. Why? Experts claim that that fish are happy with water temperature, food resources and safety from predators.  This healthy little salmon was caught accidentally during a routine aquatic invertebrate survey near Winters.

September 27, 2016. Incredible. This points to the healthy conditions in Lower Putah Creek. The small salmon in the middle of the image stayed in the creek after hatching in early 2016. It looks like a healthy fish. Nice size, coloration and look at that belly. Good food resource(s) below the weirs developed in Lower Putah Creek. See the weirs: GO HERE
