Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Determine wild winter steelhead smolt production from the Fifteenmile Creek subbasin. a. Estimate numbers of downstream migrant wild winter steelhead smolts past a migrant trap located near the mouth of Fifteenmile Creek.
1. b. Estimate the temporal distribution of downstream migrant smolt winter steelhead.
1. c. Estimate age structure of downstream migrant winter steelhead smolts.
1. d. Estimate selected morphometric characteristics of downstream migrant wild winter steelhead smolts: including mean fork length (mm) and condition factor.
1. e. Compile and analyze wild juvenile smolt winter steelhead data collected during the field season and provide a summary of the data in an annual progress report.
1. f. Record numbers of downstream migrant lamprey caught in the migrant trap.
2. Determine escapements of wild adult winter steelhead to the Fifteenmile Creek subbasin. a. Estimate escapements of wild adult winter steelhead to an adult trapping facility located near the mouth of Fifteenmile Creek.
2. b. Estimate temporal distribution of upstream migrant adult winter steelhead escaping to Fifteenmile Creek.
2. c. Estimate age structure of upstream migrant adult winter steelhead escaping to Fifteenmile Creek.
2. d. Estimate selected morphometric characteristics of wild adult winter steelhead escaping to Fifteenmile Creek: including sex ratio, mean fork length (mm), and mean weight (gm).
2. e. Compile and analyze wild adult winter steelhead data collected during the field season and provide a summary of the data in an annual progress report.
2. f. Record numbers of adult lamprey caught in the adult migrant trap.

Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

This project proposes estimating wild winter steelhead smolt production and adult winter steelhead escapements for the Fifteenmile Creek subbasin. A mark and recapture program will be implemented at a downstream migrant screw trap to estimate subbasin smolt production and an upstream migrant adult trap will be used to determine adult escapements. Data will be used to monitor trends in both parameters and to determine if natural production of wild winter steelhead is increasing through time. An upward trend in natural production of wild winter steelhead will be used to indicate that the Fifteenmile Creek Habitat Improvement Project (BPA Project #93-040) has benefited natural wild winter steelhead production based on the fact that no other major changes in land management practices have occurred in the subbasin that would cause a significant increase in subbasin production. This project is expected to require a long term commitment in resources (i.e., 8 or more years) because of 1) the life history characteristics of winter steelhead, 2) the severity of habitat degradation in the Fifteenmile Creek subbasin, and 3) the long time frame required for the effects of habitat improvement work to become manifest.
