Snorkel and Swim in the Smith River While You Count Fish

The Smith River Alliance invites swimmers and wild fish enthusiasts to participate in this year’s Fish Count, August 4 – 5., 2023. Volunteers must commit to training on Friday, August 4 in order to participate.

During the count they will continue to track the abundance of California’s healthiest population of Coastal Cutthroat trout. We will also be on the lookout for the rare summer steelhead and spring Chinook salmon, as well as suckers, rainbow trout, lamprey, and herpetofauna.

Snorkeling within the canyon walls and clear blue waters of the Smith River, volunteers will experience wild fish in their native habitat. This event contributes to annual monitoring of summer adult populations in the Smith River.

Where: Rock Creek Ranch, ideally situated on the South Fork Smith River
RSVP with marisa@smithriveralliance.org

Swimmers older than 18 may participate in the count. Please leave your pets at home.
