Chemainus River

Chemainus River with picnic table
Tubing in the Chemainus River
Chemainus River adjacent to the Chemainus River Campground. We like to camp
here as the washrooms are the cleanest we've ever seen. Definitely car camping
as you are actually in more of a farmers field if you are using a tent. But the RV
spots are under the trees. (July 11, 2009)
Floating in the Chemainus River. Average depth in the area only about two feet, but
there are spots just past my wife that average 6 feet with the odd spot past 12 feet.
The river never seems too fast, at least during the summer. (July 11, 2009)

Tubing and floating in the Chemainus River
A scuba diver in the Chemainus River. Actually me. :) (August 16, 2009) A snorkler in the Chemainus River. My wife, actually. (August 16, 2009)
Crayfish - crustacean - Chemainus River
Crayfish - crustacean - Chemainus River
Crayfish ~ 8 inches [20 cm] long. We usually spot around 8-12 crayfish in the
area each time we are here. (July 11, 2009)
Crayfish ~ 8 inches [20 cm] long. This one was just in the right position for a few
decent pictures. (July 11, 2009)
Crayfish - river crustacean
Crayfish in its den under a rock - Chemainus River
Crayfish ~ 8 inches [20 cm] long. If you look closely this crayfish is actually eating
something. (July 11, 2009)
Crayfish ~ 6 inches [15 cm] long. This one had a burrow between two large rocks
and at a depth of around 12 feet. There were also about six bullhead fish within
three feet of this spot. Seems to be more algae as well. (Aug 16, 2009)
Crayfish - crustacean
Crayfish - crustacean - Chemainus River
Crayfish ~ 8 inches [20 cm] long. This one instead of being afraid of me actually
came up to me and posed for a few pictures. (Aug 16, 2009)
Crayfish ~ 8 inches [20 cm] long. (Aug 16, 2009)
Crayfish - crustacean
Crayfish - juvenile
Crayfish ~ 8 inches [20 cm] long. Note that his crayfish is missing a pincer, and in
fact about half of them seemed to be missing one.
Crayfish ~ 3 inches [7.5 cm] long. This was a juvenile one. And it stayed hidden
for the most part.
Crayfish - crustacean - missing claws - injured
Fish - young trout
Crayfish ~ 6 inches [15 cm] long. This poor one is missing both of its main pincers,
but luckily they have other legs with pincers that can be used for eating.
Some kind of young trout. [?] Only about 2 inches [5 cm] long. This is the only
decent picture of them as they moved too quickly most of the time. A couple of the
larger ones were around 12 inches [30 cm] in length.
Bullhead fish or fresh water sculpin
Bullhead fish or fresh water sculpin
Bullhead or freshwater sculpin ~ 6 inches [15 cm] long. Just as their salt water
cousins, these fish were quite curious about me. And came to me. But would also
move away as if they were not completely comfortable, and then come back.
(Aug 16, 2009)
Bullhead or freshwater sculpin ~ 6 inches [15 cm] long. (Aug 16, 2009)
bullhead fish or fresh water sculpin
This might be fresh water sponge or ... not sure
Bullhead or freshwater sculpin ~ 6 inches [15 cm] long. Is this a sponge. ~ 2 feet [60 cm] long. The green only appears on them when they
are exposed to sun light. In all likelihood contaminated with algae. Im beginning to
wonder if some farmer up stream is using too much fertilizer. (Aug 16, 2009)
Fresh water sponge ?

Is this a sponge? In shaded areas these lifeforms were white. (Aug 16, 2009)
