The good news is that the critters are still in the stream. Three months ago it took us four nets and six hours to make it to 200- only to find out that many of the animals we were seeing weren't supposed to be in the stream. Many of the macroinvertebrates that we had seen a few months before were missing or their numbers were low. This time was different the little guys are back. Unfortunately, the critters that we saw indicate that the stream is in very poor health. This shouldn't come as a surprise though, since the lake has just been dredged. Hopefully we'll start to see some improvements this spring or summer.
