Back in 1982
October 13, 2013
We are experiencing record numbers of salmon jumping in Sargeant Bay.
Most of them are not destined for the fish ladder.
Coho and Chum normally enter the fish ladder between November 15 and December 15.

 100 Chum arrived to spawn in Colvin Creek.
This is a totally unexpected event.
Chum have not been seen in the creek since 1994.
Before that there were never more than 15.
The event is documented from bay to creek

We are starting the new year with an opportunity to donate in a way that is light on your pocket book. It is offered by the Sunshine Coast Credit Union and called "ChangeIt". Those who have account there, can choose to donate the cents part of their debit card and soon also their credit card transactions to go to up to three charities of their choice, which we hope may include the Sargeant Bay Society. At the end of the year they will receive a tax-creditable receipt. For more information about ChangeIt CLICK HERE 
December 6, 2012
After many years, salmon were again actively spawning in Colvin Creek. A few days earlier Vaughan Morton  took our request for help clearing the beaver dam at the fish ladder a step further and dug a deep hole in the main  beaver dam within view from the berm.  His motivation was to catch some of the salmon that could be seen swimming in the pond, but all he caught was a few healthy Cutthroat Trout.  We counted at least 12 Coho spawning in the gravel beds upstream from Redrooffs Road. For many years we did not see any. Yet there were always Coho fry in the creek in the spring, so there must have always been one pair that made it.

A strong wind coincided with a high tide. An aluminum boat wreck landed on the logs. A fiberglass boat, moored on a log, was crushed by the logs. Lots of flotsam, tire buoys, etc. came to rest on the logs.                                                 (Click pictures to see larger)
