Comment:

Technical Issue: Explain how this project assists the other larger (ODFW) project that is referenced in the proposal?

Technical Issue: Explain how this work relates to the development of the watershed assessment also being conducted by the MFWC, and which of the proposed work has been done or is being done by other projects.

Technical Issue: Need a better description on how the information will be used (e.g., spawning and holding areas) to get fish benefits. Explain how fish and wildlife will benefit.

Comment:

This well-written proposal points to an evaluation of spring chinook life history and the species' relationship to its habitat in the McKenzie River watershed. ISRP reviewers state that objectives and tasks seem well matched, and the need to monitor habitat for adult spawning and rearing is persuasively described. Contrarily, the objectives of tagging are not clearly described, and the proposed sampling size may not yield adequate data. Further, reviewers say it is unclear how the sponsors intend to compare different life history types and smolt-to-adult survival.
