Section 7. Abstract


The purpose of this Operation and maintenance (O&M) money is to enhance and develop the Billy Shaw Wetlands fishery area as a trophy catch and release fishery. The O&M will include maintaining the area as a high quality camping and fishing area in the West. Trash and litter will be picked up weekly to prevent pollution of the new lake. Interpretive signs will be updated and maintained to instruct anglers and campers of regulations. This money will be used for our initial stocking of fish in the lake and to help keep the riparian areas of the spawning streams feeding into the lake in high quality condition (planting trees, shrubs, willows). This lake will become a self supporting fishery with the trout spawning in the streams feeding the lake. Maintenance will be needed on these streams to protect them from degradation and maintain high water quality. Fish screens will also need to be maintained to prevent entrance of non-game fish into the new lake. Water quality of the lake and streams will be measured throughout the year, and habitat condition evaluated twice a year..

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:
Fundable if funds available
May 13, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Presentation: Reservoir construction should begin this begin this spring. FY 99 money is for operation and maintenance plus habitat work (fences, fish screens, monitoring water quality before fish come in, public education, catch-and-release). Fish for the reservoir are expected to come from the Joint Culture Facility (9500600) but if that doesn't work, then there is money in the FY 99 budget for fish from another source. At this point we are not sure which species will be stocked in the reservoir. The project also includes some tributary habitat work to generate natural production to support a self-sustaining system. We may not spend all of the $250,000 this year.


There was a large amount of carry forward from previous years, what will it cover? Answer: Those funds cover the construction of the reservoir and have nothing to do with fish production.

Will the fish screens stay in place? Answer: Yes, they will not be washed out during run-off.

What percent of the budget is for the park? Answer: This funding will not be used to develop a campground. It will be used to maintain the reservoir, keep debris out of the reservoir (maintain water quality), clean up the access sites, and clean up after campers.

Are these activities consistent with the Council's Program? Answer: Yes, this addresses the measure.

Is the project committed to stocking redband trout? Answer: Our focus is on weak but recoverable stocks rather than on production.

How many tributaries enter Billy Shaw Reservoir? Answer: Two perennial streams and 2-3 intermittent streams.

Are the site evaluations done? Answer: Yes.

Screening Criteria: Yes

Technical Criteria: No. Tasks are not clearly aligned with program. Trash removal (1/3 of costs) is not a BPA responsibility.

Programmatic Criteria: No. Project does not satisfy criteria 12, 13, and 14.

General Comment: Project needs closer coordination and consolidation of objectives and tasks with 9701100, 9020, and 8815600.

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:

Deferred fish stocking task

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
This proposal is disjointed. Proposed work ranges from protecting and enhancing wetlands to cleaning campgrounds and stocking undetermined fish species. The plan to develop a sport trophy fishery is shaky, particularly because the fish species to be used has not been selected. Do the proposers know that native fishes (trout and others) are not already present? The need for the project is not demonstrated. The planned stream habitat techniques are questionable. The combination of habitat work and stocking is not well related or well justified and appears to be questionable. The ISRP believes the proposed work could be harmful to native fish and is not biologically supportable.
