Spawning Salmon Seen in Coon Creek near Hidden Falls Regional Park near Auburn, CA

Coon Creek is the sister creek of Auburn Ravine and together they make up the Auburn Ravine watershed with its many tributaries.  Coon Creek and Auburn Ravine join at the Eastside Canal then dump into the Natomas Cross Canal and enter the Sacramento River at the fishing hamlet of Verona just below the mouth of the Feather River.  A Placer County Parks employee reported seeing many  large salmon spawning in Coon Creek.  They were in large numbers and very healthy and of very large size.

SARSAS has sent a team of photographers to film the spawning; if the team is successful, the film they obtain will be posted of Facebook Save Auburn Ravine Salmon and Steelhead.

The team with go to Coon Creek today, December 13, 2012.
