Adaptive management implications
This project will provide valuable knowledge on native salmonidsin the Stinkingwater Creek area along with the development of adaptivemanagement techniques which could be used by both tribal, state, and federalgroups. Through cooperation with federal and state agencies the tribe willdevelop a management strategy consistent and not detrimental to other landowners and managers.
County, seller and general public might not support project on private land.
Redband trout are depressed in some areas of the basin. Some populationshave been isolated due to dams and obstructions. Redband trout are desigted as "Federal Category 2 and State Sensitive, Vulnerable". As indicated in Hanson et.la. (1990) the Middle Fork Malheur, which includes Stinkingwater Creek, needs improvements on fish habitats, and an inventory of fish populations.
Constraints or factors that may cause schedule or budget changes
Target species might not take advantage of the area set aside.
SUMMARY OF EXPECTED OUTCOMES
Expected performance of target population or quality change in land area affected
Develop an implementation program/strategy to enhance native salmonids in Stinkingwater Creek, a tributary of the Middle Fork Malheur River. Determine the appropriate mix of riparian plants and creek improvements to enhance native salmonids habitat. Also, determine the appropriate mix of plants that would benefit both redband trout and large migratory game, such as elk.
