Short Description Lower Klickitat (RM 1-43) watershed/instream habitat restoration. Use completed steelhead/chinook EDT to prioritize restoration by effected life stage and location to guide action (i.e. fencing, acquisitions, pool formation, augment baseflows, add LWD).

Biological Outcomes of this project: Through restoration efforts within the stream channel and adjacent uplands, available habitat is anticipated to double for spawning, juvenile rearing, velocity refugia, and adult holding. The project work is also expected to improve water quality by reducing erosion, filtrating and storing fine sediments, augmenting canopy cover for temperature moderation, and reducing livestock waste from entering waters. Juvenile survival rates will be improved by reducing stream temperatures through increasing riparian vigor. EDT analysis of restoration activities will be used to gauge success of moving from Patient (Current) to Template (Historic) habitat conditions. Investigations in BC, WA. and OR., clearly shown the critical importance of in-channel habitat and adjacent riparian stands for salmonid production (Binns 1994, House 1996, Beschta 1991). Recent habitat enhancement/riparian revegetation work by the YN has created additional rearing area and demonstrated use by juvenile salmonids.
Biological Data: Five years of steelhead spawner data exists for estimating escapement into Project tributaries. Population estimates (fish/m2) derived from screw trapping, electrofishing and snorkeling surveys on all Project tributaries. Timber Fish and Wildlife (TFW) Ambient Monitoring data (pool, riffle, run area m2 and volume m3, channel confinement, gradient, substrate composition, LWD counts, canopy cover) and stream temperature data exists for all Project tributaries. Under YKFP guidelines, baseline data collection was initiated to populate both spring chinook and steelhead EDT model. The EDT steelhead model encapsulates information outlined above into a predicative model used to estimate increases in productivity as habitat conditions move towards template (historic) conditions by way of habitat restoration. EDT analysis will drive restoration by identifying the critical life stages affected and the specific habitat attribute that limits production on a reach-by-reach basis.
