What's in the Water?
Although relatively poor stream health of Cabin John Creek means that diversity is lower than it should be, the creek nonetheless provides a home for a variety of aquatic species.
Fish include Blacknose Dace, Brown Bullhead and Green Sunfish. You may also find crayfish - native Acuminate Crayfish are indicators of better water quality.
