Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

The management goal in the Walla Walla River subbasin is the restoration of salmonid fish species historically produced in the basin, including summer steelhead, spring chinook salmon, and bull trout. Restoration activities include artificial production releases, supplementation of natural production, and construction of hatchery, acclimation, passage, and canal screening facilities. Irrigation diversions seasonally block or impede juvenile and adult migrants and are not all screened. Planned construction of a new bypass and screening facility at the Little Walla Walla Diversion is scheduled for completion in 1999. The goal of the Little Walla Walla Screening Facility Evaluation is to ensure the facility is operated as designed, that fish are being safely guided through or trapped at the facility, and that water velocities meet screening criteria for protection of fish. Ancillary monitoring would provide information on movement and composition of salmonid migrants. Adequate protection of fish at screening facilities is necessary to ensure, in part, a successful fisheries restoration program in the Walla Walla basin.
