The aim of the project was to categorize the foreshore according to near shore and upslope characteristics such as foreshore morphology, land use, existing riparian condition, and anthropogenic alterations. The project used Global Positioning System (GPS) technology and detailed digital shoreline video to capture foreshore characteristics. The following report is presented in three parts. Part I summarizes the state of the foreshore of Central Okanagan Lake including results, discussion, and recommendations. Part II presents an analysis of the foreshore data in conjunction with existing kokanee shore-spawning data. Part III includes the technical methodology, technical recommendations, and detailed descriptions of the foreshore segments.
