In 2015 only 17 adult steelhead were believed to have entered the Carmel River and only seven passed over San Clemente Dam. No spawning was observed in any of the tributaries. CRSA volunteers spent 18 hours over 6 days monitroring the triburtaries and saw no spawning nest or any juveniles so no rescues were performed. In 2015, as in 2013 and 2014, CRSA was prevented from rescuing the mainstem of the Carmel River.
