The numbers are in on salmonids for the 2022-2023 season in the South Fork Eel River! This river is a salmon and steelhead stronghold and represents one of the best opportunities to restore wild fish abundance. To inform our conservation work, CalTrout and our partners use sonar technology to more accurately estimate how many fish are in the system.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) is pursuing a new marine sanctuary in Central California to be managed in partnership with the Chumash Tribe. CalTrout encourages you to support the Northern Chumash Tribal Council’s originally nominated boundary.
The Bull Creek watershed has incredible potential to support endangered salmonids – but the conditions in the creek are not yet quite right. Soon, completion of a restoration project on the Hamilton Reach of Bull Creek will change this giving existing South Fork Eel River watershed coho populations the chance to migrate through.
Following the voluntary water settlement agreement in Mono Basin, CalTrout and partners established the Monitoring Administration Team (MAT) to implement monitoring and maximize stream restoration in the basin. In 2022, the MAT executed the first year of fisheries monitoring.
