Owens Pupfish Given New Chance at the River Spring Lakes Ecological Reserve in Mono County, California

June 14, 2021 - A species of fish once declared extinct has not only survived but is expected to thrive thanks to a five-year effort to restore habitat and translocate more. In early April biologists from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Reno Office (USFWS) moved the pupfish from five different habitats in the Owens Valley to the River Spring Lakes Ecological Reserve in Mono County. These fish, once surviving in under an acre of habitat, now have several square miles of marsh to live in. Prior to the translocation, CDFW completed the removal of non-native fish from the reserve to ensure the future of the pupfish.

Dennis Mattinson’s Weather Forecast for Friday, Saturday and Sunday

WEATHER FORECAST AREA: The Owens Valley / The Town of Mammoth Lakes. SYNOPSIS: Cooler yesterday, as low pressure crossed N. Nevada on its way East. Enjoy that “cool” weather while it lasts, as Summer starts today. An intense anticyclonic heat dome of high pressure from Four Corners slides Westward. This pattern will bring on quite warm temperatures. By mid next week the high will expand and strengthen. This should lead to lighter Zephyr breezes and temperatures heating up to triple digits in the Owens Valley (103° in Bishop on Wednesday) and 82° in Mammoth Lakes. That ridge, by the way, looks to run close to 597 DM height contour (very, very strong for this time of year)…DMATT.
