Contracted funds will be used by the  CTWSRO Branch of Natural Resources,  Hood River Production Program to:

Conduct monitoring and evaluation of the existing spring Chinook salmon and winter steelhead re-introduction / supplementation programs. Activities include estimating adult spring Chinook returns (harvest and escapement); determining  hatchery smolt out migration timing, duration and residualism. 5,000 fish from each hatchery release group will be fitted with PIT tags.  Spring Chinook spawning locations, timing and success will be monitored. Juvenile distribution surveys will be conducted to document recolonization of the basin.  Run size predictions, harvest recommendations and tribal harvest monitoring will be implemented during FY 14.

Water quality monitoring in Rogers Creek and water temperature monitoring throughout the Hood River basin will continue.

The HRPP will maintain and operate a  PIT station near the mouth of the Hood River. The results will be used to adjust estimates of returning HOR and NOR adult spring Chinook salmon and winter steelhead.  Construction of a PIT tagging trailer will be completed.

The Moving Fall fish ladder and trap will be evaluated for monitoring needs.  Designs for PIT receivers and videography  will be completed.

Assistance will be provided to ODFW Hood River M&E project 198805304 to determine the adult salmon and steelhead trapping efficiency of the East Fork Dee Mill trap.

The CRITFC Hagerman Genetics Laboratory will be contracted to genotype Hood River steelhead using archived scale samples.  

The feasibility of establishing a wild salmon and steelhead parr monitoring program will be determined.

Work with ODFW to update the spawning distribution map layer.

During FY 14 NOAA will develop a separate contract with BPA using funds from this project to :
1. Publish paper #2 describing results from the 2009-2012 comparative hatchery evaluation.
2. Conduct the third year of data collection for winter steelhead residualism investigation.
3. Investigate the environmental and genetic affects on early male maturation of hatchery spring Chinook salmon in the Hood River basin.
The results will used to maximize smolt to adult returns for HRPP spring Chinook salmon.
