Yes, steelhead runs have been seen in Malibu Creek. I saw kids hooking steelhead there in the 1970s. I imagine steelhead could still be seen below the dam in season.
It’s disappointing that interested and critical people are evicted from meetings that should be transparent. Silt could be removed from behind the dam during the dry season. It seems logical that removing the dam during the dry season would be preferable and safer for the Serra Road neighborhood than waiting for it to collapse during a storm.
