Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Compile, evaluate, and ground-truth existing information on historical and current watershed condition and anadromous fish use within the Klickitat River sub-basin (watershed). a. Describe historical (i.e. normative) and current watershed condition and function,
1. b. Describe historical and current anadromous fish usage within the watershed.
1. c. Identify key habitat for protection or restoration, and key locations for reestablishing passage.
1. d. Identify limiting factors where anadromous fish populations are depressed,
2. Compile and evaluate information on social and economic factors affecting anadromous fisheries restoration in the Klickitat River watershed. a. Survey current and historical land ownership, land use, and water use within the watershed,
2. b. Survey existing, ongoing, and planned watershed and fisheries studies within the watershed,
3. Perform ground-truthing of factors limiting fisheries resources, and riparian PFC assessment to identify condition, trend, and causes of degradation in key watershed sub-units, a. Ground-truth findings on limiting factors identified above. Assess riparian/stream condition, trends and causes of degradation in key watershed sub-units. .
4. Integrate information, identifying and prioritizing: 1) subbasin units, based on potential for protection or restoration of high quality anadromous fish habitat, and 2) information gaps, where potential is indeterminate. . .
5. Prepare a concise report on the results of the assessment. .

Section 7. Abstract


The Klickitat River sub-basin, currently one of the most productive anadromous fisheries in the mid-Columbia River ESU now produces a small fraction of its former runs. Though efforts have been made to understand and address problems causing the decline of fish runs in the Klickitat subbasin no effort has been made which systematically address the entire subbasin as a watershed, and develop prioritized solutions for the whole subbasin. In accordance with the NPPC’s intention to coordinate fisheries restoration efforts within sub-basins, and consistent with their Fish and Wildlife Program, we propose to perform an assessment of the Klickitat River sub-basin, with the goal of providing a framework for future fisheries restoration activities. We will: compile existing information on past and present watershed functioning, fisheries resources, and land and water use; subdivide the watershed by groundwater subbasins; subdivide the subbasins by climate/vegetation factors into watershed units; identify watershed units with high existing or anadromous fishery potential; identify factors limiting fish production. Following field verification, we will synthesize the information to prioritize protection and restoration of habitat, reestablishment of passage, and further analysis needs. A report summarizing the assessment results will be completed in September, 2000.
