    I didn't think my question/s were that complicated. The 2013/2014 report list an advisory for all of Salt Creek. The 2015 & 2016 screenings don't list Salt Creek as being tested yet the advisory is no longer active and in effect in the latest documents, but above and below Salt Creek have advisories. How does that happen?

    There is contact information for the author of the report, did you contact him?

    Anywho, try this, this is the most recent report, 2016 Regional Ambient Fish Tissue Program. You can see the link there.

    That's the same information I was referencing. You can get there in your first link at the bottom of the page by clicking on this link: http://www.nebraska.gov/eatsafefish Once there they have a link to the 2016 Data Assessment: http://deq.ne.gov/Publica.nsf/Pages/WAT247 There is no reference to screening Salt Creek, and pg 30, Appendix A, specifies 52 Oak Creek & 54 Platte River as having advisories but in between them Salt Creek shows OK. If Salt Creek had been screened since 2013/14 when it actually had an advisory issued it wouldn't be quite so confusing.

    That 2015 Report is a little out of date. Interesting, though, how the October 2017 Assessment Report, using 2016 data, lists a warning for Oak Creek @ Lincoln and the entire Platte River below the Elkhorn but no advisory for Salt Creek. I also find it interesting that their was no screening listed for any portion of Salt or Wahoo Creeks. Kind of confusing if you ask me.

    You can find who knows what in Salt Creek. Fish migrate upstream from the Missouri and Platte rivers, and fish move out of the Salt Valley reservoirs, from gar to muskies you might find it in Salt Creek.

    If I was going to put myself at risk in a Kayak, especially in Salt Creek, I'd make sure my Polio, Tetanus & Hepatitis A & B vaccinations were all up to date.

    I've know a guy that did the run for the LJStar (years ago). Here's his quote, when I asked his opinion just now:


    "We put in at Wilderness Park near Pioneers Blvd. Steep slope but can be done. And floated past Greenwood. It was after a heavy rain. Otherwise too many trees and other obstacles. Best done in the morning. Get past the sewage plant before noon. Nice float. If it was me I would put in somewhere near Superior Street and float to Ashland. Fishing is probably good in that stretch."
