Tarpon found in San Bernard
Posted on Jan 18th, 2018 Comments (0)
This tarpon, measuring 26 to 28 inches, was found floating in FOR Prez Mike Goodson’s boat slip located between the FM 521 bridge and the 2611 Churchill bridge on Jan 18th. Adult tarpon live in Gulf waters but younger smaller tarpon can occasionally be found in brackish water like the San Bernard. The mouth of the Brazos River used to be considered the tarpon capital of the world.
 
Read a great story about the thrill of tarpon fishing in Texas Parks & Wildlife’s article “Catch Me If You Can”. 
 
January Water Quality Test on San Bernard
Posted on Jan 13th, 2018 Comments (0)
 
H-GAC Texas Stream Team volunteers Valroy Maudlin and Tim Logan, using a test kit, measure the physical and chemical parameters of San Bernard River at two locations along the river. Valroy tests off his pier at CR 496, 1.6 miles upstream from the Churchill BridgeTim Logan tests off his dock at Rio Vista, 4.5 miles downstream from the Churchill Bridge. Both tests are done on the same day at the same time each month.
 
The test reports the pH level, salinity, temperature, dissolved oxygen and turbidity of the water. On March 2017, a bacterium enteroccocus test was added, conducted through a partnership with Galveston Bay Foundation (GBF)
 
The two forms are shown for comparison as the data collected from the two locations can vary.
