At two thirds of the way through the cutthroat monitoring season, we took extra care in gee trap placement this month. The trout are well dispersed throughout the creek and numbers recorded were down. Jordyn joined Daryl and me and recorded a healthy, lively 160 mm cutthroat at site 1 just north of Pendray House.
Sites 2 an 4 continue to show no signs of cutthroat and so we decided to test two new sites throughout this month, to determine if there are any healthy pockets of trout.

Amy and Jordyn took several video shots of the trout being released back into the creek after measuring. You can see the care that is taken!
