The extreme drought in California is taking a toll on the Napa River's anadromous fish.
A recent survey indicates a sharp drop in the number of young steelhead trout swimming down the Napa River on their way to the ocean, a trend attributed to the ongoing drought.
Between March and June, biologists and volunteers with the Napa County Resource Conservation District tallied 31 steelhead smolts, the lowest number in six years since the annual count of the native fish began. The monitors this year also found no young Chinook salmon migrating to the ocean to mature.
