Anderson Run

Anderson Run is located in the central portion of Captina Watershed and is 5.4 miles in length. This beautiful little tributary is ephemeral meaning in drier years it has pools of water and in many cases completely dries up. Problems exist with heavy ATV traffic yet the tributary remains very beautiful with a complete forest canopy which is important to reduce large fluctuations of temperature in the stream.
Aquatic insects found in the tributary include stoneflies, mayflies and many other important aquatic insects. Just pick up a rock in the stream, turn it over and look for these wonderful critters !!
Look for the next tributary Bend Fork in a couple of weeks !!!
