Adult Return — Redd Counts

This data category contains redd count data. Counts are presented as either raw counts or as number of redds per mile. The term “peak count” is used in at least two different ways in the Pacific Northwest: 1) a single count conducted at the time when the peak number of redds are expected to be on the spawning grounds; 2) the highest count from several conducted through the course of the spawning season. Which definition of “peak” count is meant varies geographically and perhaps temporarily. Refer to the documentation to determine which measure is meant for each particular time series. These counts are generally conducted annually.
