Type of Fish caught:
Yellow Eye Mullet
From time to time the creek will break through into the ocean. This happens a few times a year and is good for the health of the creek as the weed gets a chance to be washed out.
Protip for Merriman’s creek: If the creek is not open to the ocean, walk around the other side of the creek ( opposite to the wharf ). The water is deeper on that side and yields more fish.
