Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Construct a fish ladder on Tony Creek (Rm 0.5), tributary to the Middle Fork Hood River, to restore fish passage to anadromous fish past a water diversion dam. a. Upon approval of the FY 98 Hood River Fish Habitat Project budget, project permission by water users and necessary permits would be attained and fish ladder design completed.
. b. Coordination with co-managers (ODFW).
. c. Award contract for construction.
. d. Construction of ladder.
. e. Site stabilization as necessary.
. f. Monitor success of project using existing Hood River M&E project
2. Construct and install a water diversion fish screen on Tony Creek (Rm 0.5). This will eliminate direct fish mortality from the unscreened diversion a. Upon approval of the FY 98 Hood River Fish Habitat Project budget, project permission by water users and necessary permits would be attained and fish screen design completed.
. b. Coordination with co-managers (ODFW).
. c. Award contract for construction and installation.
. d. Construction and installation of fish screen.
. e. Site stabilization as necessary.
. f. Monitor success of project using existing Hood River M&E Project
3. Construct and install an irrigation water diversion fish screen on Neal Creek (Rm 4.0). This will eliminate direct fish mortality from the improperly screened diversion. a. Upon approval of the FY 98 Hood River Fish Habitat Project budget, project permission by water users and necessary permits would be attained and fish screen design completed.
. b. Provide $30,000 cost share support to the East Fork Irrigation District for construction and installation of the fish screen. Estimated cost $175,000.
4. A half-mile of riparian area of Neal Creek (Rm 2.3), tributary to the East Fork Hood River, will be fenced to exclude livestock. a. Purchase and obtain fencing materials.
. b. Design and construct fence.
. c. Establish initial photopoints for monitoring.
. d. Monitor success of project under existing Hood River M&E project.
5. Fund a habitat coordinator position for the Hood River. This is a cost share of 50% with the Hood River Soil and Water Conservation District. a. Continue to update/modify habitat protection, restoration, monitoring plan for Hood R. subbasin. Incorporate components of watershed assessments into habitat plan.
. b. Coordinate with entities involved in the habitat plan (Hood River Watershed Group, farmers, orchardists, timber companies, irrigation districts, and conservation agencies.
. c. Plan, coordinate, and implement habitat projects. Seek cost sharing funds for all projects.
. d. Prepare a report summarizing activities for FY 99. Will be reported within the Hood River Production Program M&E tribal project annual report.

Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

The current habitat project consists of several components: construction of a fish ladder on Tony Creek, eliminating a man-made barrier and restoring three miles of winter steelhead, coho salmon, and resident trout spawning and rearing habitat; construction and installation of two water diversion fish screens, eliminating direct fish mortality; fencing one-half mile of riparian, allowing recovery from livestock. Riparian fencing will enhance water quality, stabilize streambanks, and reduce sediment in Neal Creek and in the mainstem Hood River. In addition, this project will include 50% cost share funding with the Hood River Soil and Water Conservation District for a habitat coordinator on the Hood River. Landowners have agreed to participate and will except operation and maintenance costs upon completion of the projects. Success of individual projects will be evaluated with the existing CTWS M&E program (project 88-053-03) and reported annually in project reports submitted to BPA. The HRPP is a fish supplementation project in the lower Columbia Basin funded by BPA and jointly implemented by the CTWS and ODFW. The primary goals of the HRPP are to (1) re-establish naturally sustaining spring chinook salmon using Deschutes stock in the Hood River subbasin, (2) rebuild naturally sustaining runs of summer and winter steelhead in the Hood River, (3) maintain genetic characteristics of the population, and (4) contribute to tribal and non-tribal fisheries, ocean fisheries, and the Northwest Power Planning Council?s (NPPC) goal of doubling salmon runs in the Columbia Basin. In Section 7 of the 1994 version of the Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program, the NPPC recommended that implementation of production and habitat actions be fully coordinated (NPPC 1994). In addition, an EIS was completed in 1996 for the HRPP. A record of decision was signed supporting the importance and need of habitat improvements (DOE and BPA 1996).
