Coho salmon spawn in Crystal Springs

Coho are spawning in Crystal Springs Creek, downstream from campus, caught on video for the first time in decades, according to Zac Perry, Reed’s canyon restoration specialist. Although there have been sightings of native salmon and steelhead in the Reed Canyon, the fish have not been spied in the act of spawning until now. This is a timely occurrence, as Portland is marking the completion of the Westmoreland Park Ecosystem Restoration project with a grand event on Saturday. Learn more.
