Waukau Creek Salmon

Fish migration
Small northern pike running the rapids

Fish were once again heading up Waukau Creek to try and spawn in Rush Lake.  Most will be blocked by the carp barrier, but they try until they are exhausted.  Yellow perch, northern pike, white sucker, and other species of sucker all play salmon as they attempt to run the rapids.

  1. I should have mentioned that most of the pike are very small, there were probably only a handful of legal sized fish.
