Bushkill Redd Surveys
One measure of the health of a stream is the ability of fish to reproduce in the wild. Each year the Chapter tries to do a survey of trout redds (nests) in certain sections of the stream. Although not a scientific sample, finding and counting the redds from year to year can be a good indication of whether the streams health is declining or improving.

Recent redd surveys conducted by Brian Wagner of the Forks Chapter can be viewed below. The project to improve the condition of the upper 2 miles of the Bushkill near Tatamy was in part prompted by what appears to be declining redd counts in that section of the stream.

Bushkill Fish Studies
As part of our stewardship of the Bushkill Creek, the Forks of the Delaware Chapter has undertaken several stream studies of the vertebrate and invertebrate biomass in various sections of the creek. Continued study and reference to these base studies and other periodic studies done by the PFBC will help us monitor the health of the stream.
