Assessing Bull Trout in Gething Creek

Bull Trout: S. Rooke

Gething Creek Bull Trout Assessment

Large‐bodied adfluvial Bull Trout residing in Dinosaur Reservoir use Gething Creek to spawn each fall. In 2015, attempts to capture Bull Trout in the plunge pool at the base of Gething Creek falls, where these fish congregate prior to spawning, failed to capture any pre‐spawn Bull Trout. This project proposes to repeat the sampling in fall 2016, in an attempt to confirm whether the 2015 sampling results were an anomaly, or if the trend toward extirpation of this population is indeed real.
