Stream survey for salmon…

A stroll up Crystal Springs, in Portland, looking for signs of Coho Salmon spawning…usually spawned out/dead fish or possibly still on the redd. Crystal Springs comes out of a hillside up by my house, runs into a man made lake (Reed Lake) and the continues out for a few miles to Johnson Creek, which dumps into the larger Willamette River, a major tributary of the mighty Columbia River. Efforts have been ongoing for several years to improve habitat along the stream for returning Coho. In our region, Coho are also called Silvers.

Nature: Habitat Efforts-Reed Lake

photography-crystal springs-headwaters-portland-nature-swittersbCrystal Springs: Tucked away in a fragile nook in the city, this little rivulet of water springs out of a hillside in a residential area, forms a small pool or pond and then seeps out toward a beautiful, long ‘lake’ (Reed Lake) that is home to waterfowl, a few weary fish and all manner of furtive wildlife.
