Unbelievable spawning event in Kelsey Creek.. Hundreds, if not thousands of peamouth, spawned today after a smaller event Saturday. At times, I felt I could walk across the stream on the backs of the fish. They jockeyed for the best places in the stream. I suspect there may be another event later in the spring. Peamouth are the largest member of the minnow family and are native to the Northwest from B.C. to California including Idaho and Montana. The Kelsey Creek fish spend their lives in Lake Washington and may spawn several times unless the birds or raccoons get them first. In the video, you can see the eggs lining the bottom of the creek. They will hatch in about a week and will soon make their way to the lake.
