RENO, Nev. (AP) - The Truckee River may be living in the past, but it's a pretty good life.
So far, the annual fish census shows the river's condition is pretty positive.
State Department of Wildlife spokesman Chris Healy cautions that the river is living off the good water year a couple of years ago. He says another dry winter could mean a struggle next year.
Wildlife workers are in the midst of the annual survey.
Fish stunned with electroshock equipment are netted, measured and their species, size and gender recorded. Effects of the shock are temporary, and nearly all fish are released unharmed.
The census continues through tomorrow.
