CDFW counted fish at the Redwood Creek Mainstem streamflow monitoring sites along the . The species distribution is interesting. The headwaters have a ton of coho and some steelhead juveniles. The mid section has California Roach as well as coho and steelhead juveniles. The lower reaches has pike minnow, roach, steelhead, and still coho. At this point in the season, fish are not moving around from pool to pool. They will stay in the same pool until the rain comes again in the fall. Hopefully, the rain that came after the monitoring event will help keep surface water in the pools for the season.

Redwood Creek 1.5,1.8, 2.5, 3, & 4 and Upper Redwood Creek are mainstem sites (4 is farthest downstream).
