Biological Outcomes of this project: 1. Measurable improvement in watershed conditions, including water quantity and quality, in watersheds within Wallowa County. 2. Improved spawning success and egg-to-smolt survival for salmonids. 3. Improved habitat conditions for bull trout. 4. Landowner knowledge of watershed functions will increase through education and they will make land management decisions, when provided with sufficient information, that will allow them to continue to earn a living while providing quality habitat for fish and wildlife. These outcomes will result from reductions in temperature, sediment and nutrient inputs, improved morphological attributes (e.g. pools, woody debris, bank stability), and improved flows through better water management. This is expected to facilitate removal of Wallowa County streams from the State's 303d list.
Biological Data: 1. Stream habitat surveys were conducted in the early 1940's in the Grande Ronde subbasin, in the mid to late 1950's in the Grande Ronde and Imnaha subbasins, and again in the early 1990's using Hankin and Reeves protocols in the Grande Ronde and Imnaha subbasins. 2. Spring chinook spawning ground surveys have been conducted yearly since 1949 in the Grande Ronde and Imnaha subbasins. 3. Summer steelhead spawning ground surveys have been conducted yearly since 1964 in the Grande Ronde subbasin and since 1967 in Camp Creek, a tributary to Big Sheep Creek in the Imnaha Subbasin. 4. Bull trout spawning ground surveys were initiated in 1994 in the two subbasins and will be conducted yearly in selected streams depending on funding. 5. Smolt monitoring was initiated in 1993 in the Grande Ronde subbasin and 1994 on the Imnaha River. 6. Continuous water temperature data is available since the late 1980's; other water quality data is spotty. 7. Some USGS data is available since 1913.

Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
1997 Seeded major slumps in the north part of Wallowa County following the January 1,1997 rain on snow event.
1997 Beak Consultants contract to develop a bull trout position paper for Wallowa County in reference to the proposed listing and for a possible countywide Habitat Conservation Plan.
1998 Provided funding to finalize the Lostine IFIM study and report.
1998 Relocated 0.36 miles of road out of the riparian zone in the Lightning Creek watershed, a tributary to the Imnaha River.
1998 Streambank protection and habitat improvement project on the lower Imnaha River.
1999 Provided cost-share to continue operation of seven mainstem flow gages in the Lostine and Wallowa rivers and Bear Creek.
1999 Cost-shared printing copies for peer review of updated County/Tribe Plan.
2000 Cost-shared purchase of duplexing color printer with OSU/ Wallowa Extension to print copies of County/Tribe Plan. This will reduce costs from $90.00/copy for commercial printing to approximately $14.00/copy.
