Sacramento Sucker fish migrating up Alhambra Creek to spawn Wednesday afternoon. The fish, pictured here near Ward Street, were spotted about three months after a Steelhead Trout was seen heading up the creek near Ward.
According to Michelle Leicester of the Department of Fish & Wildlife, suckers are a hardy lot, able to tolerate warmer, muddier conditions.
“More than likely, they will be able to complete their spawn and return to their pool habitat before flows drop too precipitously,” Leicester said.
