Lyon Creek comes from wetlands in south Snohomish County and flows 3.8 miles through Lake Forest Park, then drains into the NW corner of Lake Washington. The drainage basin is approximately 2,600 acres in size, one of the smallest of the Lake Washington tributary systems. The upper drainage basin is composed of a westerly fork within the City of Mountlake Terrace and an easterly fork in the City of Brier. The west fork of Lyon Creek traverses three wetlands within the City limits of Mountlake Terrace
The suitability of the salmon’s habitat of Lyon Creek has been impacted by high storm flows that have resulted in lack of spawning habitat. Historically, sockeye and coho salmon and cutthroat and rainbow trout had been observed throughout Lyon Creek.
McAleer Creek is an local creek about 6 miles long, flowing from Lake Ballinger in southern Snohomish County to Lake Washington. It is a salmon-bearing stream that also provides habitat to cutthroat trout, as well as watering a series of riparian areas, mostly in Lake Forest Park. McAleer Creek is named after Hugh McAleer, a pioneer landowner.
McAleer Creek rises on the southeast side of Lake Ballinger and runs southeast. It first flows through Nile Golf Course in Mountlake Terrace. It enters a culvert under Interstate 5 and emerges into the Lake Forest Park flood control system. It then flows through residential streets and a wooded ravine until it passes under Perkins Way, where it joins Whisper Creek as the latter flows southward. The stream emerges into the woods once again, following Perkins and later 180th Street Northeast, entering another culvert to flow under 178th Street Northeast. It opens once more as it flows into Blue Heron Park, then moving under Bothell Way into a series of weirs and fish ladders. The stream then empties into Lake Washington near the intersection of 168th Street NE and Shore Drive.
McAleer Creek supports the habitat of numerous locally important bird and fish species. Birds nesting in the stream's canyon include hawks, kingfishers, and herons, and fish it bears include salmon, trout, and bass. Many segments of the creek's route are shaded, benefiting the fish, but others are open to the sun and subject to overheating.
