The map above is derived from data provided by the California Department of Fish and Game and shows the embeddedness in pool tail crests in reaches of Buckeye Creek surveyed in 2001. Note that embeddedness values are predominantly in the range of 25-50%, which is impaired with regard to salmonid spawning habitat suitability. Optimal spawning conditions (<25% embedded) only occur in a few patches in the many miles of Buckeye Creek surveyed. Image taken from the KRIS Gualala Map project.
