NMFS and BPA did not associate any reasonable and prudent alternatives with this project proposal


Biological Outcomes of this project: This project will provide data critical to determining the current status and selected biological characteristics of the indigenous population of wild winter steelhead. This information is vitally important given the fact that little is known about the populations current status and because this population represents the eastern most distribution of wild winter steelhead in the Columbia River Basin. Information collected by this project will also provide a basis for evaluating future subbasin wide benefits derived from other BPA funded projects implemented in the subbasin.
Biological Data: A draft of the 1999 annual progress report provides a summary of data collected to date on 1) subbasin wild winter steelhead smolt salmonid production, 2) relative abundance of downstream migrant salmonids other than winter steelhead, 3) relative abundance of downstream migrant pacific lamprey, and 4) selected life history patterns and morphometric and meristic characteristics of downstream migrant salmonids. This project also maintains several database files containing all the biological data associated with each individual juvenile and smolt salmonid handled at project sampling sites. These database files are intended to provide managers with ready access to project data and to facilitate its analyses.

Year Accomplishment
1999 Estimated age specific wild winter steelhead and natural spring chinook salmon smolt production from the Fifteenmile Creek subbasin for the years 1998-1999.
1999 Estimated selected life history patterns for wild and naturally produced salmonids migrating from the Fifteenmile Creek subbasin during the years 1998-1999.
1999 Estimated selected morphometric and meristic characteristics of wild and naturally produced anadromous salmonid smolts migrating from the Fifteenmile Creek subbasin during the years 1998-1999.
1999 Monitored stream flows at the mouth (RM 0.5) of Fifteenmile Creek from 1998-1999.

Task-based Budget

Objective Task Duration in FYs Estimated 2001 cost Subcontractor
1) Determine numbers and selected life history patterns of downstream migrant winter steelhead smolts migrating from the Fifteenmile Creek subbasin. a. Estimate numbers of wild winter steelhead smolts migrating out of the Fifteenmile Creek subbasin with a mark and recapture program operated at a downstream migrant trapping facility located at River Mile (RM) 0.5 in the mainstem of Fifteenmile Creek. 6 $ 24,473  
1) b. Estimate the relative abundance of other downstream migrant salmonids (i.e., primarily spring chinook salmon and cutthroat trout) and lamprey ammocoetes collected at a downstream migrant trap (see Task a). 6 $ 100  
1) c. Estimate age structure of downstream migrant wild rainbow-steelhead. 6 $ 2,200  
1) d. Estimate temporal distribution of downstream migrant wild winter steelhead smolts in the Fifteenmile Creek subbasin. 6 $ 100  
1) e. Estimate selected morphometric characteristics of downstream migrant wild winter steelhead; including mean fork length (mm) and condition factor. 6 $ 100  
1) f. Estimate selected morphometric characteristics of other downstream migrant salmonids (i.e., primarily spring chinook salmon and cutthroat trout) sampled at the migrant trap; including mean fork length (m) and condition factor. 6 $ 100  
1) g. Prepare an annual report summarizing biological data collected in FY 2000 (i.e., each FY's annual report will be prepared in the following Fiscal Year). 6 $ 1,500  
1) h. Coordinate with other inter- and intra- agency activities which effect the ODFW's (i.e., M&E) component of the HRPP. 6 $ 4,731  
1) i. Continue activities required for project administration including: preparation of sampling plans, inventory reports, and SOW's; maintenance of financial records, purchasing of supplies; maintenance of field equipment, and budget tracking. 6 $ 400

Section 8. Estimated Budget Summary

Itemized Budget

Item Note FY 2001 Cost
Personnel FTE: 0.33 $ 10,060
Fringe @ 44% $ 4,426
Supplies $ 1,500
Travel $ 368
Indirect @26.6% $ 4,350
Capital Purchase of a screw trap $ 13,000
Total Itemized Budget $ 33,704


Total estimated budget

Total FY 2001 project cost $ 33,704
Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $ 33,704
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $ 28,500
% change from forecast 18.3%


Reason for change in estimated budget

The budget was higher than the FY 2000 forecast because we are requesting dollars to purchase a downstream migrant trap. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has allowed us to use one of their surplus traps in past FY's but this trap will not be available for use, by this project, in FY 2001.


Reason for change in scope

There are no changes planned in the scope of this project for FY 2001.
