Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

A monitoring and evaluation (M&E) project was implemented in December 1991 to collect life history and production information on stocks of anadromous salmonids returning to the Hood River subbasin. This information is being used to evaluate various activities of the Hood River Production Program (HRPP) and to develop management guidelines that will minimize the HRPP’s impact on indigenous populations of fish. ODFW funded the project until July 1992, after which time funding was provided by the BPA (Project #88-053-04). Jack and adult escapements and selected jack and adult life history patterns, and meristic and morphometric characteristics, have been estimated for six complete run years of winter steelhead, spring and fall chinook salmon, and coho salmon and five complete run years of summer steelhead. Subbasin jack and adult anadromous salmonid harvest and exploitation rates have been estimated for two calendar years. Rainbow-steelhead rearing densities, mean fork length, mean weight, and condition factor have been estimated for four years in selected reaches of stream located throughout the Hood River subbasin. Estimates of subbasin steelhead smolt production and data on selected types of steelhead smolt life history, meristic, and morphometric characteristics, has been collected for four years. Estimates of in-basin hatchery summer and winter steelhead smolt mortality have also been estimated for four years. Information collected by this project has been used to 1) determine the current status of indigenous populations of resident and anadromous salmonids, 2) identify measures that will minimize any potentially detrimental impacts the HRPP could have on indigenous populations of resident trout and anadromous salmonids, and 3) develop and fine tune management guidelines that will optimize the benefits associated with the HRPP.

Comment:
This well-written proposal provides the monitoring and evaluation for the Hood River Production Program, 8805303. The monitoring and evaluation objectives are well integrated with the overall objectives of the production program and include objectives and methods to 1) determine the current status of indigenous populations of resident and anadromous salmonids and 2) minimize detrimental impacts on indigenous populations.
