Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: Initially known as Hudson's Creek, York Creek spills down the Mayacamas Range on its way to the Napa River. If York Creek could speak, it would relate how humans have altered their perceptions of its waters. York Creek is potentially one of the best steelhead spawning and rearing streams within the Napa River basin, and is important for the overall Napa River steelhead population. Unlike many streams in the Napa River watershed, York Creek maintains perennial flow, making it especially valuable rearing habitat for juvenile steelhead.
