Update Part 1.

This update contains no fishes...however, Part II ( coming this afternoon ) does contain fishes. so bare with me.

This is just to how much water can flow there here and how fast it can change. On 4/18, in less then 12 hours we got over 2" of rain. The creek hit a max stage of 14.5' and 3800 cfs, these pictures are the creek at ~12' stage and 3400 cfs
