1 Protect and Restore Little Salmon River Project # Nez Perce Tribe Fisheries/Watershed Program By Chad Fealko

2 ESA Affected Species Spring/Summer Chinook Steelhead Bull Trout Sensitive species: Pacific lamprey, redband rainbow and westslope cutthroat trout.

3 Little Salmon River Basin

4 Little Salmon River Limiting Factors Migration problems/blockages* Riparian Alteration* Channel Alteration* Streamflow Alteration* Water Temperatures* Other water quality problems* Bold and underlined entries indicate an elevated impact of that limiting factor. Streambed sedimentation* Reduced habitat complexity* Wetland destruction* Ecological interactions with exotics* Toxics/Contamination*

5 Fisheries/Aquatic Needs Protect, create, restore and reconnect riparian and floodplain areas Reduce stream temperature. sediment and embeddedness… Restore & augment streamflows Reduce impacts from agricultural sediment and road runoff Educate the public on natural resource restoration issues

6 Phase 1: Circle C Ranch Riparian Protection and Restoration

7 Phase 2: Completion of Watershed Assessment Identification of restoration action list Implement restoration action list

8 Benefits Improved Water Quality – Reduced Stream Temperature – Reduced Sediment Inputs Improved Riparian Health and Function Increase Habitat Utilization –Increase Potential Rearing Habitat –Improve Available Spawning Habitat –Elevate Habitat Complexity Improved Passage Increased Stream Flow

9 Monitoring and Evaluation Project Effectiveness Monitoring NPTFW Comprehensive Watershed Monitoring Program (Project #28045) -- Tiered

10 Project Specific Monitoring Bank Erosion Rates Greenline Survey Temperature Bank Stability Stream Shade Channel Morphology Pebble Counts Peizometers Photo Points

11 NPTFW Watershed Monitoring and Evaluation Plan #28045 Provide Tier I & II Monitoring –Habitat extent and condition –Biological trend monitoring
