Indian Creek

These proposed Wild and Scenic Rivers in the upper Eel River watershed provide important habitat for threatened and endangered salmon and steelhead, as well as wildlife dependent on old growth forests. They also provide outstanding opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Draining a portion of the proposed English Ridge Wilderness, Indian Creek flows into the Eel Wild and Scenic River and provides important anadromous fish habitat. The creek flows through mixed public and private lands, which are protected through an easement held by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
