Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Continue inventories of anadromous and resident fish habitat in the Warm Springs River and its tributaries. a. Contract with Aquatic Inventories Project (Kim Jones, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife).
. b. Conduct habitat inventories
2. Improve water quality of the north fork Warm Springs River by reducing sediment input from roads. a. Obliterate .5 miles of the W247 road along the north fork Warm Springs River.
. b. Obliterate .25 miles of the W244 road at its junction with the north fork Warm Springs River.
. c. Rock 1.5 miles of the W240 road.
3. Improve the stability of Charley Canyon subwatershed to improve water quality in the Warm Springs River d. Implement prescribed fire on 640 acres of uplands in the Charley Canyon watershed near the S210 and S212 roads to remove exisiting Medusa-head mats.
. a. Seed the burned area with native grasses using range drilling techniques.
. b. Fence the project area to exclude livestock.
. c. Monitor vegetation recovery using condition and trend plots and photo points.

Section 7. Abstract


The CTWSRO is proposing to implement BPA funded watershed enhancement activities on the reservation in conjunction with activities funded by CTWSRO and other entities. Objectives include restoration activities designed to reduce sediment input into the Warm Springs River and completing habitat inventories. BPA would fund approximately 85 percent of the project and the remaining 15 percent would be contributed by the CTWSRO, BIA, NRCS and others. The project will benefit native populations of spring and summer/fall chinook salmon, summer steelhead, Pacific lamprey, rainbow trout, bull trout and other resident fish species in the Warm Springs River, Shitike Creek and Deschutes River watersheds. The Warm Springs River and Shitike Creek, support the only naturally spawning population of spring chinook salmon in the Deschutes River and one of the last truly wild populations in the region. No hatchery produced fish are allowed to spawn above the weir at rivermile ten. Road eradication and improvements and upland prescribed fire and seeding are proposed to treat watershed conditions that contribute significant sediment to the fish bearing Warm Springs River. Habitat inventories are proposed and data collected will be incorporated in tribal watershed assessment efforts such as the Ecosystem Diagnosis and Treatment process and the Cummulative Impact Analysis.
