The Marys River Watershed Council installed fish traps on Powell Creek, Gellatly at Greasy Creek, Woods Creek, Blair Creek, Enos Creek, Newton Creek, and Dixon Creek to document presence of native fish species. This data helps in planning for future fish passage barrier removal and in monitoring the effectiveness of completed barrier removal projects.

Thanks to ODFW Salmon Trout Enhancement Program and the 29 volunteers who help with checking the traps 3 times a week.
