Biological Outcomes of this project: This project is primarily designed to monitor and evaluate work implemented by Bonneville Power Administration project's numbered 1988-053-03, 1989-029-00, 1993-019-00, 1995-007-00, and 1998-021-00. This project, as well as the projects being evaluated, collectively fall under the program entitled Hood River Production Program (HRPP). Information collected by this project will be used to 1) determine the current status and location of anadromous salmonid fish populations indigenous to the Hood River subbasin, 2) evaluate the HRPP's impact on indigenous populations of fish in the Hood River subbasin, 3) determine if the HRPP has achieved it's biological goals, and 4) develop management guidelines that will provide the basis for implementing the HRPP in the most biologically sound manner.
Biological Data: Annual progress reports provide annual subbasin specific summaries of 1) escapement, harvest, temporal distribution of return, and spatial distribution of adult holding for wild, natural, and hatchery jack and adult anadromous salmonids; 2) salmonid smolt production, and juvenile salmonid rearing densities; and 3) selected life history patterns and morphometric and meristic characteristics of wild, natural, and hatchery juvenile and adult anadromous salmonids in the Hood River subbasin. This project also maintains several database files containing all the biological and disposition data associated with each juvenile and adult salmonid handled at the various HRPP facilities. These database files are intended to provide managers with ready access to project data and to facilitate its analyses.

Reason for change in estimated budget

Projected indirect rate was less than anticipated.


Reason for change in scope

The scope of this project will remain the same as in FY 2000 with the exception that one additional task will be added to the FY 2001 proposal. We propose radio tagging adult Hood River stock hatchery winter steelhead to determine if adults escaping to the Hood River subbasin narrowly home to the hatchery smolt release site or distribute themselves throughout the range of the indigenous population.

Comment:
The projected indirect rate was less than anticipated.

The scope of this project will remain the same as in FY 2000 with the exception that one additional task will be added to the FY 2001 proposal. Radio tagging adult Hood River stock hatchery winter steelhead has been proposed to determine if adults escaping to the Hood River subbasin narrowly home to the hatchery smolt release site or distribute themselves throughout the range of the indigenous population. This task was performed in 1994-96 with wild fish and in 1999 with hatchery fish to establish the baseline data. Tagging has been planned, but was not specifically proposed in FY 2000. The CEOR SRT does not feel that this is a change in scope for this project.

Comment:
Spending cap of 409000. 02 that showed up in 03 was paid out of current contract. Tried to pick up some of these costs through other savings. Should be right on pace for accruals. Could be 02 costs spilling over into 03. Could have spent 300K for FY03 and some of 02 that got billed into here. Might have to add 60K for FY03 to cover. Work in 04 and 05 would stay consistent and on track.
