11-30-2021 Salmon Survey Update

As the live salmon numbers continue to shrink it may be difficult to see salmon at Carkeek. The scatter map below may be a good resource to help find them. With the numbers dwindling we will continually evaluate whether to keep surveying.

 

Survey Totals

Note: Total live salmon includes Sea-Run Cutthroat and Unknowns – entries where surveyors were unable to determine the species. Remnants are included in dead counts.

11-27-2021 Salmon Survey Update

Salmon numbers have dropped dramatically at Carkeek as we near the end of the 2021 salmon run. Some salmon are still visible in the popular viewing points but they’re getting harder and harder to see. The creeks still have some fresh looking salmon that could linger for another week or two.

 

 

The total dead for the Saturday survey was nearly double the total of live.
