The headwaters of the Assu Creek watershed are Darkwater Lake, drained by Bachus Creek, and Lake Assu, drained by Assu Creek.
To date the project has been unable to ascertain whether the creek between the estuary and the waterfall (a short distance away) supports, or has supported, salmonids.
This watershed includes forest that is known to support endangered Northern Goshawk, including a nesting site. There are remnants of old forest along Bachus Creek.
There has been considerable logging in this watershed, including recently. Cape Mudge Forestry’s Woodlot 1969 and Younger Brothers’ Woodlot 2031 have both seen cutting in the watershed in the last 5 years.

Darkwater Lake, looking east over the bog at the lake’s west end. The logging road on the right was built ca. 2018 by Younger Brothers to access Woodlot 2032. See more about Darkwater Lake here.
