Short Description Assess the success of adult salmon, steelhead and lamprey passage through the Lower Columbia River hydropower system and into tributaries. Evaluate the effects on adult passage of specific flow and spill conditions and various adult passage improvements.
Target Species Chinook Salmon (Onchorhynchus tshawytscha), steelhead trout (O. mykiss) and Pacific lamprey (Lempetra tridentata)

Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Determine the proportion of fish passing Bonneville Dam that ultimately pass the upstream dams, enter tributaries, enter hatcheries, are taken in fisheries, and are "losses" between dams. a. Tag fish
1. b. Monitor recievers
1. c. Mobile track
1. d. Process data
1. e. Analyze data
1. f. Compile report
2. Assess the time for fish to pass each dam and migrate through reservoirs, evaluate entrance use and passage through fishways at the dams, evaluate the effects of spill and powerhouse discharge patterns on fish passage, assess the amount of fallback of fis a. Tag fish
2. b. Monitor recievers
2. c. Mobile track
2. d. Process data
2. e. Analyze data
2. f. Compile report
3. Evaluate specific measures to improve passage at Lower Columbia River projects based on results of 1996-98 study. Results of study are due in FY99. a. Identify measures to evaluate for FY00 based on 1996-98 telemetry data.
3. b. Prepare proposals.
3. c. Tag fish
3. d. Track fish
3. e. Process data
3. f. Analyze data
3. g. Compile report(s)
4. Evaluate the effects of operation of the new Bonneville Navigation Lock on upstream migration of adult fall chinook salmon, and lamprey a. Tag fish
4. b. Monitor recievers
4. c. Mobile track
4. d. Process data
4. e. Analyze data
4. f. Compile report
5. Assess the passage of adult lamprey at Bonneville Dam and test different passage facilities a. Same as a-f above.
5. b. Continue to test experimental facilities developed in 1999.
6. Monitor the migrations of PIT tagged salmon and steelhead outfitted with transmitters at Bonneville Dam to evaluate homing and the effect of mode of seaward migration. a. Implant radio transmitters in PIT tagged fish captured at Bonneville
6. b. Monitor recievers
6. c. Track fish
6. d. Process data
6. e. Analyze data
6. f. Compile report
