Section 7. Abstract


Twelve miles of the Salmon River have been straightened, diked, and show the effects of poor vegetation managment. The result is a continuing loss of private land and degrading fisheries habitat. To correct the problem an overview plan was developed by Forest Service hydrologists and soil scientists working with NRCS and IDFG biologists to take a wholistic approach for restoring the entire river reach. The plan basically calls for restoring a healthy riparian corridor along the river and restoring the natural floodplain. A county watershed group was formed with representation from all interested parties. This is a collaborative effort, with cost share funding from NRCS, IDFG, USFWS, USFS, BLM, BoR, US Army Corp of Engineers and possibly grants from private organizations. Funding will be administered by the Custer Soil and Water Conservation District. Private landowners will cost-share their portion by reserving land within the corridor, providing labor to manage livestock, and being responsible for long-term maintenance of fences, vegetation, and construction works.
