Contract Description:
Contract history:

This project began in 1995 as mitigation for lost anadromous fisheries due to construction of Dworshak Dam on the North Fork Clearwater River which flows through the Nez Perce Reservation in north central Idaho.  Three ponds are managed by the project to provide subsistence and recreational harvest opportunities for tribal members using trout fisheries in small, confined ponds (< 3 hectares) stocked with hatchery fish.  The project goal of 4,750 kg of trout harvested annually is limited by insufficient carrying capacity and habitat volume due to eutrophication processes in existing ponds, as well as inadequate quantity of ponds (program originally called for 6-12 ponds).  The project has completed restoration of two original ponds and construction of one new pond.

Summary of FY 06 contract work:  

The current, FY 06 contract includes the operation and maintenance (O&M) of the three existing pond fisheries.  The project will provide all necessary documentation in order to comply with the applicable environmental regulations (NEPA).  The primary objective is to provide tribal harvest opportunities through operation and maintenance of three trout fisheries at Mud Springs, Talmaks, and Tunnel Ponds.  Work tasks related to providing optimal recreational and subsistence harvest include testing and monitoring water quality parameters that determine trout habitat in each pond, and monitoring angler harvest, and using the resulting data to manage fisheries (determine appropriate stocking schedules and rates, in particular).  Periodic seine sampling is conducted to monitor fish health and condition.  Regular site maintenance tasks include access road and fence repair, controlling site access, mowing and aquatic weed removal, and equipment upkeep and repair.  Additional activities include data analysis and report preparation, as well as project coordination and administration.
