Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
1998 Identified new bull trout spawning area (tributary) that did not have previous documentation for bull trout spawning.
1998 USFS changed cattle allotments into sheep allotments to protect bull trout spawning habitat.
1999 Documented entrainment over Agency Dam.
1999 Angling regulations changed to artificial lure and fly only to protect bull trout and redband trout from incidental angling mortality.
2000 Bureau of Reclamation is changing spill operation at Beulah Reservoir to reduce entrainment. Research is now being done to develop alternatives.

Section 4. Budget for Planning and Design Phase

Task-based Budget

Objective Task Duration in FYs Estimated 2001 cost Subcontractor
1.) Document the complete migratory patterns of bull trout in the Malheur basin at and above Warm Springs Reservoir and Beulah Reservoir. e.) Weir traps will be placed on the Middle Fork Malheur River which is designated "Wild and Scenic". The USFS will complete all necessary documents for the installation of the weir traps. 4 $ 0

Section 5. Budget for Construction and Implementation Phase

Task-based Budget

Objective Task Duration in FYs Estimated 2001 cost Subcontractor
1.) Document the complete migratory patterns of bull trout in the Malheur basin at and above Warm Springs Reservoir and Beulah Reservoir. a.) Radio tag 20 bull trout and PIT tag about 100 that are captured at the weir trap in the Middle Fork Malheur River. 4 $ 65,650  
b.) Snorkel with dipnets and use hook and line survey for bull trout in tributaries to the Middle Fork Malheur; PIT bull trout larger than 150 mm and radio tag fish if necessary. (Costs included in Objective 1, task a.) 1 $ 0  
c.) Recapture PIT tagged fish in the weir trap, by angling, and by snorkeling with dipnets (Cost included in Objective 1, Task a). 1 $ 0  
d.) Use radio telemetry to track migration patterns of bull trout in the Middle Fork Malheur basin. 4 $ 34,240  
2.) Determine population trends and age class structures in bull trout and redband trout a. ) Continue monitoring spawning activity in documented areas and any new areas identified through the use of radio telemetry (Cost included in Objective 1, task b). 4 $ 0  
b.) Determine population trend of adult bull trout spawners by past and present spawning surveys. 4 $ 13,800  
c.) Gather scale samples from bull and redband trout caught during the project (Cost for collecting samples are included in objective 1.a, ODFW will do the analysis of scales). 4 $ 0  
3.) Determine water quality parameters in the Malheur basin. a.) Continue using thermographs to gather data on established sites. 4 $ 1,229  
4.) Determine the timing of spawning and preferred spawning sites. b.) Continue monitoring the locations and timing of bull trout spawning activities via radio telemetry in the Middle Fork Malheur and tributaries. (Cost included in Objective 1, task d). 1 $ 0  
c.) GPS all redds counted in the spawning surveys and enter into GIS to determine spawning site preference (Cost included in Objective 2, task b). 4 $ 0  
5.) Determine bull trout use of Warm Springs and Beulah Reservoir and fish entrainment a.) Track downstream migration on all radio tagged bull trout until radio expire (Costs included in Objective 1, task d). 4 $ 0  
6.) Evaluate the habitat profile of critical bull trout spawning and rearing tributaries in the Malheur basin. a.) Stream survey using ODFW 2000 protocol; approximately 30+ miles of mainstem habitat will be surveyed 4 $ 0  
b.) Electroshock streams which have suspected or potential bull trout populations 4 $ 0  
7.) Determine the genetic variability of redband trout within the Middle Fork Malheur River and Warm Springs Reservoir a.) Gather 60 samples from the Middle Fork tributaries, 60 from the weir trap located in the mainstem, and 60 samples from Warm Springs Reservoir that are to be analyzed by the University of Montana 1 $ 0  
8.) Determine cold water micro-refugia within the Middle Fork Malheur Basin a.) Snorkel cold water micro-habitats identified from FLIR data and determine bull and redband trout utilization. 1 $ 0  
9.) Progress Reports Data entry, data analysis, and report writing 4 $ 42,000
