The California Department of Fish and Wildlife's (CDFW), Klamath River Project (KRP) operated a video fish counting facility and conducted spawning ground surveys ( carcass surveys) on Bogus Creek during the Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) and coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) spawning season. The purpose of these surveys is to describe the run characteristics of adult fall-run Chinook salmon and coho salmon into Bogus Creek. Steelhead trout ( Oncorhynchus mykiss) observations are made during the course of sampling for Chinook and coho salmon. Video fish counting operations began on September 8, 2015 and ended on January 15, 2015, at the end of the season. Spawning ground surveys began on October 9, 2015 and were conducted twice a week through December 14, 2015.
