North Creek Subarea

Why is this Subarea Important to Salmon?

Although highly developed, the North Creek Subarea supports runs of chinook, sockeye, kokanee and coho trout and steelhead trout. As nearly half of the subarea is covered by impervious surfaces (pavement, buildings, etc.), it is not surprising that altered hydrology and loss of channel complexity are two of the primary concerns for salmon here. There are also fish access and passage barriers in the North Creek Subarea.
