Biological Outcomes of this project: The expected biological outcomes from integrated rule curve implementation are those anticipated through more stable and higher pool levels in Dworshak Reservoir, and achievement of more normative flows downstream from Dworshak Dam. These outcomes include: enhanced primary and secondary reservoir production, reduced kokanee entrainment, improved access for fish (including bull trout and kokanee) migrating in and out of the reservoir, improved conditions for spring near-shore spawners, increased opportunity to actively revegetate a portion of the reservoir drawdown zone, improved rearing conditions for downstream fall chinook salmon, and a more normative spring hydrograph to aid downstream migration of juvenile salmon. Stabler early spring water levels and successful revegetation could encourage reestablishment of the redside shiner, an important forage fish species.
Biological Data: Biological rule curve production model (FY 2000), historic and project generated primary production data, zooplankton production and loss data, benthic data, digitized reservoir bathometry (habitat), historic relative fish abundance data (including occurrence of redside shiners), kokanee spawning index stream data, kokanee entrainment loss estimates, fish growth, fish mortality, food habits, fish condition, population structure, IFIM study and recommendations for Clearwater River downstream from Dworshak Dam, and mainstem anadromous fish passage data.
