Healing of Hyas Creek From 1951 Fire Gets a Boost From Cooperative Effort

“There are only two anadromous fish-bearing tributaries in that portion of the South Fork Calawah drainage and Hyas Creek is one of them,” said Phil DeCillis, fisheries biologist for USFS. “It had the least amount of wood per mile of the streams we surveyed, so it was important to get more in there. The tributaries are important refuge areas for fish.”
