Redwood Creek flows dropped 80% between 7/20/22 and 8/4/22. Even though Sproul and Redwood Creek share a ridgeline and have similar drainage areas, Sproul Creek has four times as much flow in it as Redwood Creek. Miller Creek, which joins Redwood Creek in Briceland, is no longer flowing and dissolved oxygen levels are low enough to lead to juvenile salmon mortality. Water temperatures  in Redwood Creek are also warm enough to be stressful for salmonids especially Coho salmon.

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

Dinner, Miller, and China Creeks are Redwood Creek tributaries.
