Biological Outcomes of this project: Biological objectives for wild adfluvial cutthroat trout in tributaries of the Coeur d'Alene Reservation include rebuilding adult populations to 75-100 percent of the optimum level by 2016 (about 40,000 returning adults). This will be accomplished by achieving interim biological objectives (25 percent by 2007 (about 10,500 returning adults)and 50 percent (about 21,000 returning adults) of optimum level by 2012). The ultimate goal is to have well distributed, self-sustaining, naturally reproducing and harvestable populations of westslope cutthroat trout on the Coeur d'Alene Indian Reservation. Other biological outcomes include: Production of up to 10,000 catchable sized rainbow trout for stocking in five Tribal catch out ponds. Reduce the risk of extinction for westslope cutthroat trout in the four target tributaries such that there is a 95 percent probability of persistence over 100 years.
Biological Data: Measurements of abiotic factors (e.g. stage/discharge, temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, conductivity, turbidity, TSS, nutrients) are tracked at 10 sites within the four target watersheds. Measurements of biotic factors include abundance and distribution of trout species and are assessed annually at 95 sample sites within the target watersheds. Migration of adult and juvenile fish is monitored in each watershed through use of a modified weir and holding pen. Macroinvertebrates are sampled and analyzed following EPA Rapid Bioassessment Protocol (RBP) II of Plafkin et al. (1989). Physical habitat assessments conducted at individual restoration projects describe changes to channel morphology, hydrology, and riparian function using Methods for Evaluating Riparian Habitats with Applications to Management (Platts et. al. 1987) as a guidance document for selecting appropriate habitat variables and methods.

Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
1987 NPPC amended 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. Documented location, accessibility, stream gradient, and habitat potential of 21 streams within the Reservation boundaries.

1997 Stocked Worley Pond with 2200 rainbow trout.
1997 Initiated baseline water quality monitoring in Lake Coeur d'Alene to identify limiting factors for the adult cutthroat trout lifestage.
1998 Constructed and enhanced 2 acres of wetland habitat and planted more than 9,000 trees and shrubs. Substantially reduced non-point source sediment pollution from over 300 acres of farmland.
1998 Stocked Worley Pond with 1400 rainbow trout.
1998 Compiled comprehensive lists of landowner contacts in each of the target watersheds. Signed 8 long-term easements to protect critical habitat in two target watersheds during the past three years.
1998 Completed 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 Completed supplementation feasibility report for westslope cutthroat trout on Coeur d'Alene Indian Reservation. Determined the need for supplementation of natural fish stocks in order to meet goals of NPPC and Tribe.
1999 Stocked Worley Pond with 1400 rainbow trout.
1999 Rehabilitated more than 20 acres of riparian habitat and planted more than 11,000 trees and shrubs. Substantially reduced non-point source sediment pollution from over 300 acres of farmland.
1999 Initiated a bathymetric survey of Lake Coeur d'Alene to quantify near shore habitat.
1999 Completed a biological assessment for bull trout in waters of the Coeur d'Alene Reservation. Obtained an incidental take permit from the USFWS to authorize restoration and monitoring/evaluation activities and ensure compliance with ESA.
1999 Completed a NEPA compliance checklist and supplemental analysis for watershed projects under the watershed management program EIS.
2000 Completed hatchery Master Plan. Step 1 NPPC Hatchery Planning Process. Completed hatchery NEPA process, Step 2 NPPC Hatchery Planning Process and Step 3 Final Design. Completed genetic analysis of cutthroat trout in reservation waters.
