Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
1987 NPPC ammended the F&W Program to include baseline stream surveys of tributaries located on the Coeur d'Alene Indian Reservation.
1990 Conducted field surveys of Reservation streams.
1990 Completed annual report which assessed the enhancement potential of Reservation streams for westslope cutthroat and bull trout.
1991 Physical and biological surveys were completed on the ten tributaries identified for further study.
1991 Used a modified Missouri method of evaluating streams in combination with information on biological indicators to select target tributaries for restoration and enhancement.
1992 Began using watershed assessment techniques to describe watershed processes and resource conditions in target tributaries on the Coeur d'Alene Indian Reservation.
1993 Conducted baseline population evaluations for westslope cutthroat trout and macroinvertebrates in each target tributary.
1993 Identified limiting factors for westlope cutthroat and bull trout in target tributaries.
1994 Developed recommendations to improve and protect habitat while increasing numbers of westslope cutthroat and bull trout in target tributaries.
1994 Recommendations of the Coeur d'Alene Tribe were adopted by NPPC.
1995 Priority areas for restoration were identified in the four target watersheds.
1995 Initiated the first demonstration projects. Erected 2.8 km of exclusion fencing, installed bank protection structures, constructed pool habitat, and reestablished connections with historic floodplain channels at two locations.
1995 Implemented the first compensatory harvest project by planting 1000 rainbow trout into Worley Pond.
1996 Implemented additional demonstration projects. Erected 1.9 km of exclusion fencing, placed LWD in a 300 meter test reach, installed two current deflectors, and planted more than 9,000 trees and shrubs.

1998 Initiated a gravel study in known spawning tributaries of each target watershed to quantify the quality and quantity of available spawning gravel.
1998 Collected over 400 individual tissue samples from 13 location to determine stock purity and relatedness of westslope cutthroat trout stocks.
1998 Stocked of Worley Pond with 1400 rainbow trout.
