San Francisquito Creek contains one of the last threatened steelhead trout runs in the entire South San Francisco Bay. This video clip shows an adult steelhead of approximately 21 inches in length swimming in one of the watershed's tributary creeks in May of 2009. I used a pole camera to capture this rare sighting below a partial migration barrier where the steelhead was resting. Note the size of the adult compared to the juvenile steelhead seen at the upper left, which measure between 3-7 inches in length. The most beneficial action to restore this population to larger numbers and as an important seed population for other Bay streams is to remove Stanford University's Searsville Dam. Please visit the Beyond Searsville Dam Coalition website at www.beyondsearsvilledam.org for more info and to support this effort. Thanks
