Volunteers did our early fall pre-spawner fish trapping today and were happy to find lots of coho smolts and cutthroat trout. All released unharmed, of course!

Lovely day to be on the creek!
The above two photos show the general area of the site with the trap that had the most fish. Rough areas for humans to get through, but fish love the complexity and cover.
Lots of cool fungi deep in the bush!
