We checked the turtle traps and they were all empty. Then, we paddled downstream of the boat ramp to check out a rocky riffle area where we found a Yellowbelly Watersnake, several Western Ribbonsnakes, lots of Southern Leopard Frogs, and maybe a few Plains Leopard Frogs. We also found Northern Cricket Frogs here and a Bullfrog, Northern Cricket Frogs, and Southern Leopard Frogs at the boat ramp.We checked the turtle traps and they were all empty.
