Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Determine if substrate goals of CRITFC (1995) and NMFS (1995) are being met in monitored reaches. a. Annually measure surface fine sediments in monitored reaches in John Day and Grande Ronde Rivers for five years.
2. Estimate if substrate goals of NPPC FW Program are met (<20% in salmon redds). a. Prior to spawning, annually emplace containers of cleaned gravels in areas excavated to simulate redds and collect containers after incubation for particle size analysis to determine amount of overwinter sedimentation.
3. Estimate effects of fine sediment on salmon survival from egg-emergence a. Analyze results of tasks in Objectives 1 and 2 using available methods relating fine sediment to salmon survival, e.g, Stowell et al., 1983; data of Scully and Petrosky (1991).
4. Investigate potential temporal trends in surface fine sediment and overwinter sedimentation a. Statistical analysis of results of multi-year measurement of surface fine sediment and overwinter sedimentation.
5. Investigate potential relationship between surface fine sediment levels and overwinter sedimentation in cleaned gravels a. Analyze results of Objectives 1, 2, and 4.
6. Determine if spawning habitats in different streams have different levels of surface fine sediment and different levels of overwinter sedimentation. Report and disseminate findings. a. Analyze annual and multi-year results of tasks in Objectives 1 and 2 via regression analysis.
7. Report and disseminate findings. a. Prepare and distribute annual and final reports, report results to StreamNet, present findings to watershed councils and fish and land management agencies, submit an article summarizing results to a peer-reviewed publication.

Section 7. Abstract


For five years, the proposed project will annually measure surface fine sediment and overwinter sedimentation of fine sediment in salmon spawning habitat during the incubation period in portions of the Grande Ronde and John Day Rivers in sites constructed to mimic salmon redds. Objectives are to: a) determine temporal trends in surface fine sediment and relation to substrate goals of CRITFC (1995) and NMFS (1995); b) determine magnitude and temporal trends over five years in overwinter sedimentation and relationship to NPPC (1994) substrate goals; c) estimate effect of overwinter sedimentation on salmon survival using existing information; d) investigate relationship between overwinter sedimentation and surface fine sediment and other environmental variables; e) investigate potential differences in trends in surface fines and overwinter sedimentation in different rivers and reaches. Prior to the onset of spawning, surface fine sediment will be measured by the grid method (Bauer and Burton, 1993); overwinter sedimentation will be measured by burying containers filled with cleaned gravels at the depth of egg centrum in areas excavated to mimic salmon redds. After fry emergence, containers will be collected and samples analyzed for the magnitude of fine sediment.
