Section 7. Abstract


The Kalispel Resident Fish Project (NWPPC program measures10.8B.14,15,16,18 and19) was designed to assess and determine the habitat conditions in the tributaries to the Pend Oreille that are limiting to the native bull trout and cutthroat trout populations. Based on the habitat assessments, recommendations for enhancement measures were developed to increase the quality and quantity of habitat for these native salmonids. All enhancement measure sites were subjected to an intensive pre-assessment of habitat and fish populations that will be used in comparison to three years of post assessments to determine the types of enhancement that provide the most benefit to habitat conditions. In conjunction with the tributary enhancement efforts, this project has a mainstem enhancement component. A largemouth bass hatchery has been constructed to facilitate the production and rearing of juvenile bass for supplementation and thereby increase the production of harvestable bass within the reservoir. To enhance the overwinter survival of juvenile bass, artificial habitat is being added to the almost structure free reservoir. Subsequent habitat and population assessments will be used to determine the effectiveness of enhancement measures toward meeting the established biological objectives for both the tributaries and mainstem.

Reviews and Recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

CBFWA: Resident Fish Review Comments Recommendation:
May 13, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Presentation: This is a 4-part project which includes habitat restoration (for bull trout, cutthroat trout and bass) and bass supplementation. The tribe has conducted baseline assessments looking at habitat quality and quantity in 7 tributaries. A micro assessment was conducted on each reach and stream. Recommendations have been developed from the baseline studies and the streams in the poorest condition were selected for enhancement. The recommendations have been submitted to the land owners and managers. Suggested enhancement measures include cattle management, fencing and planting. Each enhancement activity will be monitored and evaluated for 3 years. The most effective enhancement actions will then be applied to other tributaries. At this time, there is not a substantial bull trout population. If a bull trout stream is found, it will be enhanced. There is little winter cover for large mouth bass in the Pend Oreille River and survival rates are declining. This project provides artificial cover in sloughs. A low cost bass hatchery was completed in October 1997, and production should begin in 1998.


Is there any cost share? Answer: Yes, many groups contribute.

Explain how bass supplementation does not conflict with bull trout in the tributaries? Answer: Warm water fish don't conflict with others. Box Canyon pool has a uniform temperature and does not stratify. The habitat is unusable by salmonids (there are very few brook trout).

Are there long-term agreements with the landowners? Answer: There are no formalized agreements but the landowners are working through the Box Canyon Watershed project and have a seat at the table.

Screening Criteria: Yes

Technical Criteria: Yes

Programmatic Criteria: Yes

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
This proposal is for resident fish substitution. The project involves a number of conflicting goals. The goals of assessing and creating trout habitat to benefit trout populations, and at the same time stocking and fostering populations of large-mouth bass, seem likely to conflict. The methods section is inadequate; reference to an annual report is not sufficient presentation of methods to allow their evaluation.
