Short Description To enhance fisheries on the DVIR we will stock two reservoirs (closed systems) with rainbow trout. This project will support a sustainable (put-and-take) harvest by Shoshone-Paiute tribal members and non-Indian anglers without impacting native trout.
Target Species Utilization: introduced trout species (e.g., rainbow, cutthroat, brook) for put and take fisheries. Protection: redband trout; bull trout, other resident fish species comprising the native fish community.

Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Provide trout fisheries for tribal and non-tribal members at suitable times & locations on the Duck Valley Indian Reservation to maximize harvestable production and minimize the impact on native resident fish populations. a. Purchase rainbow trout from private rearing facilities that are certified to be disease free and are of suitable size for put-and-take fisheries, i.e., catchable within one year of stocking.
1. b. Schedule the delivery of the trout to maximize fish survival (i.e., schedule stocking to enable fish to acclimate to seasonal reservoir conditions such as temperature and dissolved oxygen) -- while sustaining population density and catch rates.
1. c. Maintain equipment and vehicles needed to stock fish and monitor the fishery.
2. Monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the stocking program in the context of a comprehensive fish management plan for the Owyhee River Basin, Duck Valley Indian Reservation component. a. Monitor limnology and water quality of streams and reservoirs on a bi-weekly basis during the spring & summer seasons to determine suitable times and locations for stocking fish.
2. b. Inspect influent and effluent channels on a bi-weekly schedule to ensure the proper functioning of screens that prevent migration of trout out of the reservoirs.
2. c. Conduct a creel survey of Mountain View and Sheep Creek reservoir fisheries throughout the fishing season – in conjunction with enforcement patrols – to determine fish condition & growth rates and angler catch rates.
2. d. Evaluate the stocking regime (schedule, numbers, and size composition) to reservoir surface area, volume of available habitat, limiting ecological factors, potential sources of mortality, and return to the creel.
2. e. Coordinate the monitoring and evaluation activities of the fish stocking project with the other fish and habitat restoration projects within the framework of a comprehensive DVIR fish & wildlife management plan.
