The end of summer arrived with a healthy cutthroat count on Bee Creek. However the trout population appears to be concentrated towards the mouth of the creek and smaller counts in the upper reaches closer to the source.
We can also report one dead trout only the second in over five years from site four which is located mid way in the creek. It measured 50 millimetres and cause of death is unknown.
The same site found the largest trout at 180 millimetres, all of them being active and healthy.
With two months left in the monitoring season, the creek flow is still strong and clear.
