On August 29, 2011 Carmel River Steelhead Association crew did a fish rescue on Finch Creek. The creek will soon be drying out, and some of the fish were captured and moved to permanent water below Los Padres dam. Nearly 200 fish were moved from about 500 feet of creek. Remaining fish (many) will take their chances here. Who knows? Maybe the creek will flow until winter rains, but it seems unlikely. Frank Emerson, Brian LeNeve and several volunteers, including Ari (Carmel Middle School).
