Field Notes: East Fork Walker Creek

On Monday we had a great start to our East Fork Walker Creek project.  There is a 3-foot culvert on private timberland that is perched and undersized on a small tributary to Walker Creek.  SFEG is working with contractors to replace the culvert with a 60 foot bridge.

Dozens of juvenile coho, cutthroat trout and lamprey were netted out of a pool adjacent to the culvert. The fish were relocated upstream at Walker Creek where there was clean and clear water.  We even had an 11” cutthroat trout!
