Abstract: In the North American Midwest there has been a lengthy history of restoring or augmenting the frequency of pools and/or cover at salmonid streams, largely as a result of the economic value of recreational fisheries that these classic trout streams support (Hunt 1993). Experience in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) with stream restoration is much more recent, and most work has been directed at anadromous fish habitat in more challenging geomorphic and hydrologic settings. Most large-scale projects have attempted to restore lost channel and habitat structuring elements that would otherwise require a century to recover naturally (Slaney and Martin 1997). This recovery time is lengthy because many forested streams of the Pacific Northwest were historically logged to streambank, with the resultant gradual loss of instream large wood. In addition, streams were cleared of large woody debris (LWD) by such ecologically damaging practices as wood removal, splash damming, channelization, or dyking.
