The Conservation and Management Plan for Sausal Creek Wild Rainbow Trout
Sausal Creek is one of the few urban creeks in California to support a genetically ‘wild’ population of rainbow trout. It is truly an Oakland native!
Drawing on the expertise of our staff, board members, and volunteers, Friends of Sausal Creek prepared a plan that describes the status and trends of the fish population, details the threats and stressors affecting the health of the fish, and recommends actions necessary for decreasing and reversing the harmful effects of human activities, past and present, that continue to imperil the very existence of rainbow trout in Sausal Creek. The Conservation and Management Plan for Sausal Creek Wild Rainbow Trout was released on June 30, 2020 and is now available for your consideration
The plan was prepared by FOSC Board Members Robert A. Leidy, PhD and Tim Vendlinski, and FOSC staff Jay Cassianni, Jackie Van Der Hout and Becca Sanchez.
The Sausal Creek Watershed Enhancement Plan (March 2010)
The Sausal Creek Watershed Enhancement Plan (March 2010) is a study of the hydrology of the Sausal Creek Watershed. It offers detailed information on a wide variety of subjects, from plant and animal life to the strength of high water flows, the effects these have on the land and the water quality, and much more. The plan will inform decisions on future developments and restorations in the watershed. We consider it a living document that may change as conditions change and improvements progress. We invite you to read it and email comments to .
The plan was prepared by Laurel Marcus and Associates, NewFields River Basin Services, and Hydrologic Systems Inc.
It was funded by The San Francisco Foundation's Bay Fund and the State Water Resources Control Board under Proposition 40—the California Clean Water, Clean Air, Safe Neighborhood Parks, and Coastal Protection Act of 2002.
