San Jose residents are being asked to keep an eye out for people setting illegal fish traps in local waterways after city workers and South Bay Clean Creeks Coalition volunteers recently broke up several found in the Guadalupe River.

The traps were discovered about two weeks ago under the Julian Street bridge and farther south near Virginia and Willow streets. The fish traps are built out of large items like river rock, which block the stream so fish become penned into a shallow pool of water away from their migratory path. That makes it easy for poachers to nab the fish from the stream. It can also interfere with wildlife research and fish repopulation efforts such as those supported by the coalition.

All of the structures were promptly removed by coalition volunteers and the San Jose Conservation Corps, but coalition founder Steve Holmes told the Resident it wasn’t the first time they’ve appeared. Several illegal traps were also found last month, and they’ve been discovered in the same areas stretching back at least several years.

“We’d seen crude traps along the waterways when they were made out of nets or barriers of shopping carts,” Holmes said.

Fish trapping is always problematic for game wardens and other wildlife professionals, and the new traps are even more sophisticated.

“One on Virginia Street…that one was really kind of well-designed. You had these low walls that allowed the fish to jump over, but there’s no stream,” he said. “There’s a wall and water seeping through it but no direction to follow. They become disoriented. People just come in and poach the fish.”

Holmes said there’s a “constant vigil to keep people from doing this,” noting more than 30 people including volunteers and game wardens now monitor the Guadalupe and all its tributaries for signs of unlawful activity. Signs reminding people to not fish in the river were added as an extra measure.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is “very aware of the situation,” according to spokesman Peter Tira, who said the dams sometimes are built for other reasons besides capturing fish.

“We found that the homeless will build dam structures to back up the creek, but they’re probably built for a variety of reasons including places to bathe, clean, do dishes and to cross the creek,” Tira said. “We do believe there’s cases where they may be used to poach fish, but it’s not just for fish. We believe it’s a combination of things going on.”

Several fish species that inhabit the Guadalupe River, including Chinook salmon, are predominantly strays from a hatchery in the Central Valley. A small population of Central California Coast steelhead trout, which are listed as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act, are particularly vulnerable, according to Tira.

“They’re not in good shape; the last adult confirmed steelhead sighting was before 2013,” he said. “It’s significant because we want to see adult fish, because it means that they have returned to spawn or have moved up and down the river. Those are the fish that reproduce, so we like to see adults.”

People caught fishing without a license usually get hit with a base fine plus state and county penalty fees. The minimum fine is usually $485 but could be much more if other offenses are committed, such as taking salmon from spawning areas.

Tira said there are “special fishing regulations specific to the Guadalupe River that govern the fishing season,” which ended last month. Those rules spell out how many and which kinds of fish can be caught, and specify that only artificial lures and barbless hooks may be used.

Guadalupe River Fishing Report Card

Here's your fishing report for today the 22nd of October for Guadalupe River. We take a number of different data points to make our fishing recommendation. Our recommendation is based on aspects about the weather conditions, moon phase & water conditions. Of course these should only be used as indicators combined with your own past fishing experience fishing on the banks of Guadalupe River.

Clour Cover

It's common knowlege cloud cover is an angler's best friend. You'll need a sun hat today if you head out to Guadalupe River as you'll be in the sun more often than not as coverage is only at 20%.

Wind Direction

There’s an old saying on wind direction which has many variations but here's the most popular which I'm sure you've heard: “Wind from the West, fish bite the best. Wind from the East, fish bite the least. Wind from the North, do not go forth. Wind from the South blows bait in their mouth.” Its less so about the direction but the cause for the direction. We’ll cover this more in a blog post soon but for Guadalupe River right now the wind is coming from a south easterly direction which means fishing is poor.

Wind Speed

Good news, the wind speed is currently at 14 mph is considered in the optimal range for fishing as the ripples caused by the wind on the water's surface will help hide the line an lure on Guadalupe River

Moon Phase

Moon phases have split fishing folk's opinion straight down the middle with the bigger impact on saltwater fishing but some freshwater anglers swear their catch improves when the moon is in a "New" or "Full" moon phase. These phases cause bigger tides making fish more active and susceptible to feeding meaning an opportunity for you to nab a catch. Guadalupe River is currently under a "Waxing Cresent" phase which means its less optimal fishing time.

Guadalupe River Trout Fishing

The map on this page shows the trout fishing area of the Guadalupe River between the Canyon Lake dam and the City of New Braunfels. Trout will be stocked at Guadalupe Park, Whitewater Camp, 4th Crossing, 3rd Crossing, and Camp Huaco Springs.

Many camps and resorts in this area offer river access to paying guests. Free public fishing access is provided at the following locations:

  • Year-round: Guadalupe Park, operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers
  • December 7, 2019 – March 7, 2020, except weekend of February 21-24: Free access available for trout anglers at Camp Huaco Springs.

Anglers at leased areas have free access to the river from 30 minutes before daylight until 30 minutes after dusk. They may use the properties for bank fishing and to launch non-motorized watercraft such as rafts, kayaks and canoes for the purpose of fishing. These leases were made possible with grant funding provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Voluntary Public Access and Habitat Incentive Program.

Guadalupe River (California)

River in Santa Clara County, California, United States

For other uses, see Guadalupe River.

The Guadalupe River (Spanish: Río Guadalupe; Muwekma Ohlone:Thámien Rúmmey) mainstem is an urban, northward flowing 14 miles (23 km) river in California whose much longer headwater creeks originate in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The river mainstem now begins on the Santa Clara Valley floor when Los Alamitos Creek exits Lake Almaden and joins Guadalupe Creek just downstream of Coleman Road in San Jose, California. From here it flows north through San Jose, where it receives Los Gatos Creek, a major tributary. The Guadalupe River serves as the eastern boundary of the City of Santa Clara and the western boundary of Alviso, and after coursing through San José, it empties into south San Francisco Bay at the Alviso Slough.

The Guadalupe River is the southernmost major U.S. river with a Chinook salmon run (see Habitat and Wildlife section below). Much of the river is surrounded by parks. The river's Los Alamitos and Guadalupe Creek tributaries are, in turn, fed by smaller streams flowing from Almaden Quicksilver County Park, home to former mercury mines dating back to when the area was governed by Mexico. The Guadalupe watershed carries precipitation from the slopes of Loma Prieta and Mount Umunhum, the two major peaks of the Sierra Azul, the historical Spanish name ("Blue Mountains") for that half of the Santa Cruz Mountains south of California Highway 17.[3][4] Two of the Guadalupe River's major tributaries, Los Gatos Creek and Guadalupe Creek have their sources in the Sierra Azul Open Space Preserve on the western and eastern flanks of the Sierra Azul.


The Guadalupe River was named by the Juan Bautista de Anza Expedition on March 30, 1776, Río de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, in honor of the Virgin of Guadalupe, the principal patron saint of the expedition. Specifically, Juan Bautista de Anza camped along the banks of the Guadalupe River at Expedition Camp 97 on March 30, 1776 near the present-day site of Agnews State Hospital (Santa Clara County, 2001).[5] The historic de Anza Expedition explored much of Santa Clara County, traversing western areas en route from Monterey to San Francisco, and traveling around the south end of San Francisco Bay and thence through the eastern portions of the county on the return trip after exploration of parts of the East Bay.

In 1777, the original Mission Santa Clara de Thamien and el Pueblo de San José de Guadalupe were established on the banks of Mission Creek, un tiro de escopeta (a musket shot away) from its confluence with the Guadalupe River.[6] Both had to be moved away from the river because of mosquitoes in the summertime and flooding during the winter. Today Santa Clara Mission is 2 miles (3.2 km) away from the original location.

Historically the Guadalupe River was even shorter, originating several miles further north, at the downstream end of a large willow swamp that is now Willow Glen. Its main tributary was known as Arroyo Seco de Guadalupe on 1860 maps and then as Arroyo Seco de Los Capitancillos on the 1876 Thompson & West maps.[7]

On July 9, 2005, the fossilized bones of a juvenile Columbian mammoth were discovered by San Jose resident, Roger Castillo, in the Lower Guadalupe River near the Trimble Road overcrossing.[8] Roger founded the Salmon and Steelhead Restoration Group conservation organization[9] and has served as a Board member of the Guadalupe–Coyote Resource Conservation District.[10] The Pleistocene mammoth was nicknamed "Lupe" by area residents and Lupe's fossils are exhibited at Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose.[11]

Guadalupe watershed[edit]

Tributary creeks of the Guadalupe watershed 3D Topo Map

Historically, the Guadalupe River flowed into Guadalupe Slough, 1.0 mile (1.6 km) west of its current drainage into Alviso Slough.[12][13] To make it easier to get sailboats up the Guadalupe River to the port of Alviso, the river was redirected into the straighter Alviso Slough by the 1870s. Alviso Slough, also known as Steamboat Slough historically, was relatively straight, while Guadalupe Slough meandered extensively through the marshes. Alviso Slough was historically not fed by any upland streams, but simply carried tidewater in and out of the extensive salt marshes.[14]

The re-routing of the river to Alviso Slough in the 1870s also disconnected it from several tributaries, and had the effect of shrinking the Guadalupe watershed. San Tomas Aquino Creek (current) and its Saratoga Creek tributary (previously known as San Jon Creek and Campbell Creek) and Calabazas Creek (historic), used to enter the Guadalupe River upstream of Alviso. These tributaries were disconnected from the river and re-routed directly into Guadalupe Slough between 1876 and 1890 according to historic maps. Reportedly, Saratoga Creek (Campbell Creek) had steelhead and coho salmon runs. Large portions of the tributaries of the river were straightened and armored starting in the late 19th century and continuing through the 20th century first by farmers and then by the Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) and its predecessor organizations. They now go dry in the summer months and their lower segments have become denuded ditches requiring continuous maintenance. Mission Creek used to harbor trout and salmon but today it is buried in a culvert. The historic watershed can be viewed in the Thompson and West 1876 maps.[7][15]

The Guadalupe watershed today drains an area of 171 square miles (440 km2). Below its origination at the confluence of Guadalupe Creek and Los Alamitos Creek, the mainstem is joined by three other tributaries: Ross, Canoas, and Los Gatos Creeks.[16] The SCVWD manages water flows (supply) and provides flood control on the river, and recently has started to promote watershed stewardship. Six major reservoirs exist in the watershed: Calero Reservoir on Calero Creek, Guadalupe Reservoir on Guadalupe Creek, Almaden Reservoir on Alamitos Creek, Vasona Reservoir, Lexington Reservoir, and Lake Elsman on Los Gatos Creek.

Restoration of the river mouth[edit]

Ending nine years of study and passionate debate about the future of the San Jose/Alviso waterfront, the Santa Clara Valley Water District in November, 2009 voted to approve a $6 million project to clear bulrushes, tule reeds and thick sediment from the Guadalupe River in Alviso.[17] The construction of salt evaporation ponds in the 1930s rerouted the river, cutting off tidal action. Later, in the 1960s, as Alviso was being annexed into San Jose, the Army Corps of Engineers and the water district straightened the river to improve flood safety, which inadvertently increased sedimentation into Alviso Slough. The current project will open a former Cargill salt pond (known as A8) as the beginning of the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project, considered the largest tidal wetland restoration project on the West Coast. When complete, the project should restore 15,100 acres (61 km2) of industrial salt ponds to tidal wetlands. Pond A8 will be the first one worked on.[18]

Chinook salmon are historically native to the Guadalupe River watershed as proven by a recent ancient DNAsequencing study of salmonid remains excavated from Mission Santa Clara and dating to 1781–1834 CE. Of 58 salmonid vertebrae analyzed, three samples had DNA sequences indicating Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), the other 55 were steelhead trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss).[19] These findings are consistent with earlier documentary records indicating the local presence of migrating salmon in the ‘'Rio Guadalupe'’ dating as far back as the 18th century.[20] Much older archaeological remains of salmon were found dating through A.D. 300 in the lower watershed in what is now north San Jose.[21] On February 22, 1904 the San Jose Daily Mercury (now the San Jose Mercury News) reported "Several large salmon and steelheads have become stranded in the holes, and after the water has subsided they have become the prey to boys. Several large salmon have been captured even in the city limits."[22] Both steelhead trout and Chinook salmon continue to spawn and rear in the Guadalupe River, making San Jose the southernmost major U. S. city with known salmon spawning runs, the other major cities being Anchorage, Seattle, Portland, and Sacramento.[23] From 1992–1994 a genetic study of mitochondrial DNA in 29 fish showed that some have haplotypes not found in Central Valley wild or hatchery salmon, but found in the Russian River.[24][25] Two subsequent analyses found that chinook salmon in the Guadalupe River are mainly fall run Central Valley chinook, but also that some were genetically similar to lower Columbia River basin salmon.[26][27] Chinook salmon are adept at colonizing neighboring and even distant streams and rivers, as evidence by the recent finding of juvenile Chinook salmon from the Klamath River in the Napa River.[28] In 2012, the Santa Clara Valley Habitat Plan reported that Chinook salmon currently spawn in the Guadalupe River and its tributaries, as well as Coyote Creek. Because Chinook spawn in early winter and juveniles may migrate to the ocean in their first spring, Chinook are able to use habitats that turn very warm or have low water quality in summer.[29]

On the Los Gatos Creek tributary a population of California Golden beavers (Castor canadensis subauratus) has been re-established between Lake Elsman and Lexington Reservoir. The beaver were re-introduced to the portion of Los Gatos Creek where it enters Lexington Reservoir sometime prior to 1997, and recently, a beaver reportedly served as "a hearty meal" for a local mountain lion.[30] Video documentary by Greg Kerekes documented beaver in the Guadalupe River mainstem in downtown San Jose in April, 2013.[31][32] These are the first beaver recorded in the Santa Clara Valley since zoologist James Graham Cooper captured one in Santa Clara for the Smithsonian Institution on Dec. 31, 1855.[33] Historical evidence of beaver in the area includes reference by Captain John Sutter who around 1840 recorded that 1,500 beaver pelts were sold "at a trifling value" by the Indians to Mission San José.[34] In 1840, from the port of Alviso, California, beaver pelts, cattle hides and tallow were shipped to San Francisco.[35] In addition, in 1828 fur trapper Michel La Framboise travelled from the Bonaventura River to San Francisco and then the missions of San José, San Francisco Solano and San Rafael Arcángel. La Framboise stated that "the Bay of San Francisco abounds in beaver", and that he "made his best hunt in the vicinity of the missions".[36] Golden beaver were apparently wiped out by trappers in the Bay Area sometime after the end of the California Fur Rush.

Caspian terns (Hydroprogne caspia), North America's largest tern, return to the Bay every spring to nest, migrating from as far away as Colombia. According to scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey, Caspian tern populations in the South Bay are declining at the same time that high levels of mercury are being found in their eggs. The highest mercury levels found in animals from the Bay were in the eggs of Caspian and Forster's (Sterna forsteri) terns that nest near the Cargill salt ponds at the mouth of the Guadalupe River. A study conducted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has found that nearly three-quarters of the eggs examined from black-crowned night heron (Nycticorax nycticorax) nests in the Guadalupe watershed contained mercury exceeding thresholds known to kill the embryos of other bird species.[37]


The river occasionally floods in downtown San Jose, south of downtown, as well as in Alviso. Flooding prompted President Clinton to declare a National Disaster Area in 1995 and 1997. In March 1995, flooding of this river around the San Jose Arena caused the cancellation of a San Jose Sharks game, the only rainout in the history of the National Hockey League.[38] This flood, like most Guadalupe River floods, was triggered by undersized bridges, in this case the Julian Street Bridge.

The river has flooded 15 times since World War II. In response to this flooding, the Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) launched a series of flood protection projects along the Guadalupe River to ensure that residential and commercial areas near the river are protected from 100-year floods. A major component of the flood control project, designed to control a 100-year flood along the Lower Guadalupe, was completed in late 2008.[39] The greatest Guadalupe River flood on record occurred in 1955 and was part of the legendary "Christmas Week Floods" when the Guadalupe River flooded 8,300 acres (34 km2).


After four years of the harsh California drought, in July 2015, the river ran dry for an 8-mile stretch through the city of San Jose. This was due to inadequate storage in upstream reservoirs for the releases of water needed to sustain flow to the river mouth until winter rains returned.[40]

Mercury contamination[edit]

The Guadalupe watershed was an area of intense activity during the California Gold Rush, with the quicksilver mines within Santa Clara County supporting the gold refinement process.[41] Thus, mercury toxicity and its effects on surrounding humans and wildlife is a major concern for the area. Because mercury is an effective magnet for gold, miners during the Gold Rush would regularly line their sluices with Mercury to amalgamate the gold. An estimated 6,500 tons of mercury was lost in the system of creeks and rivers along the coast between 1850 and 1920, and is currently being detected today in the local streams, animal life, and riverbeds of these affected tributaries.[42][43][44][45] Mercury loads are mobilized during large storm events. An evaluation of mercury loads during the large January 2017 rainstorms was similar to data gathered during a similar storm in 2002.[46] Animals at the top of the food chain that consume fish contaminated with mercury are the most vulnerable, including predatory fish, birds, mammals, and humans that consume fish due to a process called biomagnification.[47]

Guadalupe River

Guadalupe River is a River located in Santa Clara County, CA. Starting in San Jose, CA the Guadalupe River flows 16 miles through San Jose, CA before ending in Alviso, CA. The Guadalupe River rises to an elevation of 7 feet and has a surface area of 81,665 square miles. Find maps, fishing guides, weather and recreation information at Guidesly.


Guadalupe River is a narrow 14-mile long waterway that runs across the city of San Jose in California. It flows northward from the small neighborhood of Erikson at the southern part of the city, to the Alviso Slough where it empties to the southernmost part of the San Francisco Bay. Although the river has many smaller tributaries throughout its whole length, its three major tributaries (namely Los Gatos, Los Alamitos, and Guadalupe Creeks, which in turn, are fed by smaller tributaries originating from the Santa Cruz Mountains) keep the flow of the river alive.

The river was named in honor of the Virgin of Guadalupe by Juan Bautista de Anza, a Spanish explorer who camped along the banks of the river in 1776. Historically, the river was shorter and narrower back then. But with the construction of watersheds, channels, culverts, and storm sewers, as well as the re-routing of some natural streams and other small tributaries throughout the river, it became what it is today—a long, strong-flowing waterway that is home to a huge population of wildlife including beavers, terns, and a wide array of fish species.

The Guadalupe River has also seen its fair share of calamities. The river has overflowed several times in the past decades alone, causing massive flooding in the areas around the river. To address this problem, a series of flood control projects were launched by different private and government organizations, with the major component of the said project being completed in 2008. Droughts were also a cause of concern due to high temperatures and decreased rainfall. But these are mitigated as well by releasing more water from the reservoirs when the water level reaches its critical level.

I was not ready for such a rapid development of events, so at some point I stopped the dialogue. Yes, it's called "virtual", and the asset guys don't like this very much, but I couldn't help myself, and honestly write - I was afraid. However, the case changed everything.
