Habitat Comments:Since the original collections of the Fish Creek Springs tui chub, their range and numbers have severely decreased. Historically, they occurred in large number in the springs and their outflow creeks. Surveys conducted during 1978 and 1979 recorded the tui chub from only one of the four springheads and failed to find any tui chubs in the outflow creeks (Hardy, 1986). However, in July 1983. biologists found that tui chubs had returned to three of the four springheads and currently (2012) the outflow of the main spring flowing to the road east of the ranch. The westernmost spring in the Fish Creek Springs system has been modified and is not longer connected to the system.
