Resident cutthroat trout are in Carkeek Park year-round

Thousands of salmon fry are released every Spring by CWCAP volunteers and hundreds of adults return in the Fall to spawn. But did you know that there are year-round resident coastal cutthroat (Oncorhynchus clarkii sp.) in the creeks too?

Adult cutthroat trout spawn in the Spring and there are juveniles throughout the system in Mohlendorph, Venema, and Pipers Creeks, and the lower wetlands.
