Now is the best time to view salmon in your local rivers!
In the Bay Area, adult salmon have returned to the Lagunitas Creek watershed after recent rains. Stream flows are now high enough to allow salmon to migrate through Lagunitas Creek and into tributaries such as San Geronimo Creek and Devil’s Gulch. This is a good time to look for coho salmon jumping at the Inkwells, where San Geronimo Creek flows into Lagunitas Creek.
The main attraction (due to the fishes’ relative abundance and bright colors) is the coho salmon run, which should be getting underway right now. Over the next few days, coho salmon will hopefully be visible migrating, jumping, fighting, and spawning throughout the watershed.
We hope you get a chance to go outside and see these resilient fish in your local river! Take a photo and tag us and we’ll feature it!
