Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Assess resident fish species within Satus Creek and Toppenish Creek and their tributaries a. Gather historical information ie. Planting records,fishing creel census if available and interview fishers.
. b. Field survey- electro-fishing and snorkeling in randomly selected reaches
2. Limiting factors analysis on flow and fishing pressure from fishers a. Low summer flow, winter runoffs, riparian damage, sediment from roads.
3. Comparison of the two watersheds. a. Why are brook trout and cutthroat
4. Recommendations for management of the watersheds for resident fish survival and enhancement. a. Reccommendations for management to include timber harvest, road building and maintenance, fishing pressure.

Other Budget Explanation

Schedule Constraints: Toppenish Creek and Satus Creek are tributaries of the Yakima River and flow through the Yakama Indian Reservation. It is assumed that for this reason there should not be any constraints other than natural causes, such as the weather, spring freshets.

Section 7. Abstract


The Yakama Indian Nation does not have a resident fish program which has assessed the status of resident species within the Toppenish Creek and the Satus Creeks and their tributaries. These creeks have been recognized as the anadromous streams for steelhead returning to spawn. The resident fish species have been neglected to some extent. The overall project goal and objectives of the project is to collect data that will be useful for resident fish management, and enhance the resident species to allow for consumptive subsistence and recreational fisheries for Tribal members as well as sport angler’s, as described within the 1994 Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Program, this project will also provide benefits to anadromous fish and wildlife. This can be done by supplementation or artificial production, or better management of the watersheds, riparian areas, depending on reccommendations of staff once assessments are completed.
