Good news! High flows this weekend allowed coho salmon to migrate into the tributaries to Lagunitas Creek for the first time since Thanksgiving! Observers saw at least 20 adult salmonids (mostly coho plus some steelhead) jumping through the “Inkwells” on San Geronimo Creek. I’ve included a photo of a particularly fat coho salmon jumping there, courtesy of Virginia Fifield. We’ll conduct spawner surveys once stream flows recede a bit and I’ll post an update on what we find.
