Water returns!!!!

Whilst we in the Pacific Northwest commonly curse our rainy weather, today was indeed a blessing.  Precious water partially filled Noons Creek today – not something we’ve seen of late!!!! Hallelujah!

And not before time; the shrinking pools were getting to be a concern for the Coho fry still in the creek.  Within 2 months we would normally expect our adult spawners to return – but even they will not enter the creek unless there is sufficient water for their passage and to create their redds to deposit eggs.

We will only have to wait and see if this unusual dry spell continues into Fall…………we pray not so.

Noons Creek on Monday 31st August 2015 – so much water now, anyone could be forgiven that it was late Fall!!! The weather in 2015 has had us all baffled – and frustrated!
