Aaaah, wonderful weather to enjoy and share with many visitors the beauty of the forest and creek in Lynn Canyon.
The salmon and trout are withstanding 20ºC water, when they prefer no more than 15ºC.
It’s great to be able to have these pools and trails accessible for all of us to enjoy and learn about nature, but we need reminding not to leave a mess behind.
We also need to know not to disturb habitat, particularly the creek bottom, and not to wear sunscreen or lotions. It would be nice to see some signage and park rangers about to remind/enforce rules and impart the sensitivity of these waters that the abundance of salmon and trout rely on — the clean, cool, pristine water that comes from our mountains.
There is a lovely sign of the salmon lifecycle but (in my observance), I think we need to do more.
