Happening now: Watch for coho at Fauntleroy Creek

19 coho so far this week but none yet today, according to Fauntleroy Creek steward Judy Pickens, who is out today along the otherwise-private reach of the creek, talking with visitors, until 3:30 pm.

To get there, walk down the private driveway that’s off Director, off the northeast end of the creek overlook that’s across Fauntleroy Way (and up the embankment) from the ferry dock, and go around the house to find the path down to the creek. Judy was at the second footbridge when we stopped by.

3:47 PM P.S.: If you didn’t make it there today, you have another chance tomorrow, 12:30 pm-3:30 pm. More than a dozen people already had visited by the time we were there; one visitor was visiting Seattle from Boston!

    Saw well over 10 spawning salmon in Longfellow creek near Genesse st, really cool!

    We saw a couple of spawning salmon at Longfellow Creek today as well. If the kids would have slowed down, we’d probably have seen more. Very cool!

    My partner and I decided to stop by Longfellow creek today. We walked around for about 30 minutes, and saw over 20 salmon. There were about 8 or 9 underneath and around the bonefish bridge, and then there were fish randomly scattered about as we looked into the water from different bridges and viewpoints.

Sorry, comment time is over.
