Large wood in Pudding Creek provides salmon refugia and spawning habitat. The importance of the Pudding Creek restoration project goes well beyond the short length (<10 miles) of this stream. At present, Pudding Creek has the highest numbers of coho of any stream in Mendocino County, but no one can say exactly why. There is cautious optimism that the current large wood project will act as a multiplier to whatever conditions in the drainage are promoting coho success. © The Nature Conservancy
