Section 7. Abstract


The Model Watershed Project (MWP) was initiated by the Northwest Power Planning Council in 1992 to improve chinook salmon and steelhead habitat in the Lemhi, Pahsimeroi, and East Fork of the Salmon River watersheds. Currently, these watersheds provide habitat for approximately 75% of the upper Salmon River anadromous fish. The goal of the project is to maintain, enhance, and restore anadromous and resident fish habitat while also achieving and maintaining a balance between resource protection and resource use on a holistic watershed management basis. This project is administered through Lemhi and Custer Soil and Water Conservation Districts and is coordinated through the Idaho Model Watershed Project Advisory and Technical Committee in conjunction with the IDFG screen program and the Bureau of Reclamation Water Conservation Program. Fish migration problems have been identified in the Model Watershed Plan (1995) and the Stream Habitat Inventory for the Lemhi, Pahsimeroi and East Fork Salmon Rivers, 1994 (unpublished). We are in the process of implementing appropriate habitat enhancement and passage restoration projects. These include fishways, irrigation diversion consolidations and structures, improved water distribution, improved secondary channel habitat, streambank stabilization, irrigation system development, portable fish screens and instream flow agreements as they relate to adult and juvenile fish migration. A portion of the identified projects in our priority areas are being constructed each year. Additionally, monitoring and evaluation is conducted by the MWP to access meeting project objectives.
