The creek had a good flow to it, and was fairly deep in parts. There was amazing fish and wildlife habitat along our stretch, including textbook off-channel shallow areas that are perfect for fish refuge. We didn’t see any salmon, steelhead or lamprey, but the conditions seem ripe for them. We did see some minnows in a school, but were unable to identify them. We saw the minnows at latitude 45.48 and longitude -122.41. We also saw a dead crawfish! It was a sunny and beautiful day, and we enjoyed being isolated in the budding and dense vegetation. We had a lot of fun, and would be happy to survey again!
