A winter home for steelhead trout as they migrate upstream to spawn and then move back to the sea in the spring. This stream is viewed as a very significant part of the local watershed and riparian corridor – as you can see with all the vegetation in the photo. At 26.6 miles, Pescadero Creek is the longest stream in San Mateo county, which flows all year from springs. This creek was once a renowned sports fishing stream for vacationing San Franciscans in the late 19th century for steelhead trout and coho salmon.
This picture was taken last week and she still flows even with the drought we’re having! You hardly see any hikers along the way so you practically have the creek to yourself!
