To improve fish access and the quality and quantity of fish habitat on subject channels [refer to enclosed maps] by improving channel definition, reducing overbank flows, and reducing the extent or likelihood of diversions. Treatments include removing small woody debris (SWD), roughening fan and floodplain environments, manipulating existing large woody debris pieces, and beaching abandoned beaver dams. Coho salmon, rainbow trout, and Dolly Varden char are the target species. Similar work was done on the Mamin River tributaries in 2005. A review of completed work revealed good results with respect to project objectives as well as an opportunity to improve results with minor touch-up work.
