Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Determine the current temporal and spatial use patterns of all life stages of wild spring chinook spawned in the McKenzie Basin. a. Map (GIS) the location of adult holding and spawning areas. Graph the temporal distribution of spawning
1. Determine the current temporal and spatial use patterns of all life stages of wild spring chinook spawned in the McKenzie Basin. b. Estimate the timing of emergence in spawning areas and relate to water temperatures.
1. Determine the current temporal and spatial use patterns of all life stages of wild spring chinook spawned in the McKenzie Basin. c. Map (GIS) the location and relative abundance of rearing juveniles throughout the year.
1. Determine the current temporal and spatial use patterns of all life stages of wild spring chinook spawned in the McKenzie Basin. d. Estimate the timing of juvenile migrations at Leaburg Dam, at the mouth, and in the mainstem Willamette.
2. Identify the juvenile life history types that currently contribute to the production of spring chinook salmon. a. Pit tag wild juvenile spring chinook at three life stages as they migrate past Leaburg Dam. Use tag recoveries at several sites down to Willamette Falls to estimate when these fish leave rearing areas.
2. Identify the juvenile life history types that currently contribute to the production of spring chinook salmon. b. Determine if reference collections of scales from juveniles at several life stages can be used to identify life history contribution to wild adult returns.
3. Identify current habitat and environmental attributes used by various life stages, particularly those attributes needed to maintain successful life history types. a. Obtain current habitat and environmental data from the proposed FY99 McKenzie Watershed Assessment.
3. Identify current habitat and environmental attributes used by various life stages, particularly those attributes needed to maintain successful life history types. b. Use GIS overlays of distribution (Obj. 1), an analysis of life history data (Obj.'s 1 & 2), and habitat data (Task 3a) to identify the habitats and environments important to spring chinook.
4. Identify opportunities to improve habitat in existing production areas and to re-establish populations in areas historically occupied. a. Use Ecosystem Diagnosis and Treatment (EDT) (Lichatowich et al. 1995) as a conceptual approach to improving/increasing habitat in the McKenzie Basin.
. Identify opportunities to improve habitat in existing production areas and to re-establish populations in areas historically occupied. b. Obtain historic habitat and environmental data from the proposed FY99 McKenzie Watershed Assessment.
. Identify opportunities to improve habitat in existing production areas and to re-establish populations in areas historically occupied. c. Describe historic life history strategies used by spring chinook in the Willamette Basin. Data will come from the literature.
. Identify opportunities to improve habitat in existing production areas and to re-establish populations in areas historically occupied. d. Compare current life histories and habitats with historic (healthy) life histories and habitats to identify factors that may be limiting production.
. Identify opportunities to improve habitat in existing production areas and to re-establish populations in areas historically occupied. e. Recommend prescriptive treatments that can be used to correct or circumvent habitat/environmental limitations.

Abstract

This project is designed in two interrelated phases. The first phase will collect information and make recommendations that allow fish and land managers and watershed councils to secure the present population of wild spring chinook in the McKenzie River by better protecting important, existing chinook habitats. In this phase we will map current use of the river by all life stages of wild spring chinook salmon and identify the habitat/environmental conditions important in maintaining those life stages. Map overlays in a Geographic Information System (GIS) will be the analytical basis for this objective and will provide managers a visual representation of areas and habitat used by wild spring chinook salmon at any time throughout the year. Life history data will be compiled from existing information, where available, and will be collected in the field where needed. After information to secure the present population has been reported, a second phase will identify opportunities for managers and watershed councils to increase natural production of spring chinook salmon in the basin. During this phase we will describe methods and identify areas for improving habitats/environments in existing production areas. In addition, we will examine the relative value and feasibility of re-establishing production in areas used historically, primarily in those areas cutoff by dams. The Ecosystem Diagnosis and Treatment (EDT) process described by Lichatowich et al. (1995) will form the conceptual approach for phase two.
