The Chocolay River is home to hundreds of species of flora and fauna. Mink, muskrat, black bear, deer, herons and eagles all call this river their home. Several species of fish swim upstream to spawn as well. If you watch closely after a rain or on a full moon, you might see steelhead cresting the surface on their way upstream.
