This month we were joined by new ELSI volunteers Jordyn and Amy, who were very enthusiastic and who handled the young trout with great care. A video showing Jordyn releasing a Cutthroat at site 3…..underwater….taken by Amy, is a wonderful testament to the benefits of volunteerism.
A really good mid summer day, with 12 healthy cutthroat recorded, principally from the mouth of the creek and further upstream on RRU grounds. A surprise at site 3, shown here, was two very small juvenile cutthroat of 40 millimeters.
Site 3 also produced healthy numbers of fresh water shrimp, which can explain why this site attracts consistent numbers of trout.
Thanks, Amy and Jordyn!
