Biological Outcomes of this project: 1. Increase chinook salmon and steelhead trout to help meet the Council’s objective of doubling the run size without loss of biological diversity and protect and enhance habitat for bull trout and westslope cutthroat trout and other riparian dependent species. 2. Increase chinook salmon adult numbers from 50 to 2000 in the Bear Valley Basin. 3. Increase chinook salmon egg-to -par survival from 0.8% to 5.0% in the Basin. 4. Decrease spawning substrate fine sediment in the Bear Valley Basin from 40% to 30%. 5. Increase bank stability in Bear Valley Basin from 60% to 80% (PACFISH standard). Products from this project will include permanently removing livestock grazing impacts from approximately 73,000 acres of National Forest System lands; increasing chinook salmon adult numbers from 50 to 2000 in the Bear Valley Basin; increasing chinook salmon egg-to-parr survival from 0.8% to 5.0% in the Bear Valley Basin; and decreasing spawning substrate fine sediment in the Basin to 30%.
Biological Data: Several sources of biological data exist. The USFS, NMFS, IDF&G, and SBT have monitoring programs in the Basin since the early 1980's. This information includes habitat parameters and population characteristics. See: Burton, T.A., W.J. Ririe, J. Erickson, and M. Miller. 1998. 5-Year Monitoring Report for Bear Valley Stream and Riparian Habitats. Boise National Forest, Boise, Idaho; Lamansky, J.A. and S.A. Grunder. 1998.
