Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

The purpose of the Umatilla Subbasin Umbrella is to provide reviewers of individual project proposals the context of the overall fisheries and wildlife restoration effort in the subbasin. To accomplish this the management intent of each species is provided in the form of objectives, the overall approach or strategies for accomplishing objectives are presented and FWP projects are related to the strategies in the from of actions. It is intended that this document provide a clear picture of how projects within the Umatilla Subbasin are carefully planned and implemented to function as a unified set of actions to accomplish restoration objectives. Development of the basin extirpated salmon in the early 1900’s and depressed steelhead populations. ODFW, Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) and others have identified 6 strategies to restore Umatilla basin anadromous fish production (Umatilla Subbasin Umbrella; Boyce 1986; CRITFC 1996; CTUIR and ODFW 1989; USBR and BPA 1989). These strategies include: 1) Improving Umatilla flow; 2) Improving passage at Umatilla River irrigation diversions; 3) Improving riparian communities and instream habitat; 4) Reestablishing salmon production through hatchery releases; 5) Supplementing steelhead populations using endemic broodstock; and, 6) Monitoring and evaluation. Objectives include return of 11,000 adult spring Chinook, 21,000 adult upriver bright fall Chinook, 6,000 adult coho and 9,700 adult summer steelhead. These goals include both natural and hatchery production expectations. Since Umatilla salmon were extirpated a non- indigenous stock was used to initiate this program. Steelhead supplementation uses endemic stock.
