Fish Observation at the Sagehen Experimental Forest in California
  fish cam  
     

One of the unique features of the Sagehen Experimental Forest is a 25-foot long underwater window through which researchers can study fish behavior. The windows look out from the basement of our Fish Observation Building into a controlled segment of the actual Sagehen Creek main stream channel. View the fish-cam...

The fish you are watching are mostly native & endangered Lahontan Cutthroat Trout (Oncorhynchus (Salmo) clarki henshawi).

You may also see some smaller Brook, Brown & Rainbow trout. If the water is cloudy, it's either raining or snow is melting & run off is high. If there are human legs in the windows, it's glass cleaning day!
