    1. Seeing that first green cast is so invigorating and pretty! It has started here with some of the trees downtown, but the photo of the creek is a week old. I’ll be checking it out today! Cheers.

    1. There are! Kokanee salmon, to be exact. This creek is being “rehabilitated” later in the spring to facilitate the autumn Kokanee run. Back in the 50s, someone thought it would be a good idea to coat sections of the creek bottom and sides with cement, and the fish don’t like that. Over the intervening years, all sorts of fixes (adding rocks and gravel) have been done, but the fish numbers arriving upstream have remained low. The solution is to remove the cement. This is supposed to be completed in chunks over the next few months and finished in time for September. Cheers.

  1. People are just beginning to realize that small creek beds are vitally important to fish survival. The photos are lovely and I hope you’ll find a few more leaves beginning to peek out on the trees on the banks of the creek.

    1. I agree. It has taken a long time for people to realise that small isn’t necessarily useless.

      Thank you very much. I’m hoping to see a bit more before heading north again at the beginning of next week. Cheers.

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
