What an INCREDIBLE day! Almost 50 volunteers showed up to help improve a major spawning area in Putah Creek. The fish will undoubtedly soon be seen taking advantage of the 2000 sq ft of brand new spawning beds. Everyone had fun and there was a real sense of purpose and warm camaraderie throughout the day (this was even BEFORE the beer).
We need your help in adding gravel to the spawning area at the top of the resort. In order to accomplish this we will need at least 60 people to help get the gravel to the creek.
Welcome to our new website! Now that Putah Creek has been designated a Wild Trout water by the Heritage and Wild Trout Program, the hard work begins to improve and sustain the wild trout fishery. Recent surveys and angler information indicate spawning success in 2015-16 was strongly impacted by sediment mobilized from the Wragg Fire by a rain event in early March. PCT and its partners (CFFU and TU) have two events planned for this fall to directly address the lack of quality spawning habitat in Putah Creek.
A gravel scarification and weed removal event is scheduled for on Saturday, October 29, 2016. Sunday, November 6, 2016 PCT and TU will host a gravel augmentation event (24 yards of gravel!) at Canyon Creek Resort.
Both of these projects are critical to the future of the fishery. The loss of multiple generations could reduce fishing success for years to come. Like our Event page on Facebook to receive updates on the projects.
