Abstract

Completing fish passage improvements at Lower Eldorado Falls within the Lolo Creek Watershed is the goal of this project. This project will work within an overall watershed approach for the Clearwater Sub-basin, by completing a final design for improvements at the falls to allow anadromous fish passage to prime spawning and rearing habitat. This will benefit and increase anadromous fish habitat, therefore, assist in enlarging their populations, and work towards the goal and objectives of the Columbia River Anadromous Fish Restoration Plan of the Tribes. The design approach will be to modify the falls with as little impact to the environment, using as much native materials as possible, allowing successful fish passage. The plan will take into account anadromous fish (salmon and steelhead) capabilities, designing for required pool depth to jump height ratios, pool lengths, pool volumes, standing waves and for the streams velocities, flows, and characteristics. The design will also take into account flows at different times of the year that both fall and spring returning fish return to this area. The outcome of the project will be a system that allows for clear passage of anadromous fish to 12 miles of prime spawning and rearing habitat. The design will be done in year 1998, with tentative construction finished by 2001. Anadromous fish, upon completion of the project, will be observed for successful fish passage. The amount of spawning redds will be monitored and evaluated for increased populations. The monitoring observed and evaluated information will be stated in yearly reports produced by the program and distributed to all parties involoved or interested.
