Contract Description:
The Coeur d'Alene Tribe intends to reestablish a native redband trout fishery in the Hangman Watershed by addressing both the landscape level and in-stream habitat issues that restrict the redband populations on the Coeur d'Alene Reservation to the higher elevation tributaries of the Watershed.  Successful restoration of redband trout in the Hangman Watershed is regarded by the Tribe as a step towards preparing the Reservation landscape and community for the return of salmon as a Tribal resource.  This Scope of Work describes the FY2015 activities associated with the Coeur d'Alene Tribe's Hangman Wildlife Project, which is the Resident Fish project that is designed to address the landscape level issues that result in decreased base flows and thus restrict redband populations.  The Work Elements have been grouped under general categories that correspond to Planning and Coordination, Construction and Implementation, Research and Monitoring, and Project Administration.

Major initiatives during FY2015 include; 1) a push to finish the exchange of the easement on uplands within the current hnt’k’wipn Management Area, which is a BPA Wildlife Mitigation Property, for a conservation easement on floodplain acreages that will more readily support in-stream habitats, 2) continuing the establishment of native vegetation, 3) minimizing noxious weeds, 4) activating the newly constructed Sheep Creak realignment for the summer months, and 5) partnering with other agencies and initiatives to broaden the effect of restoration efforts in Hangman.  Completion and submission of reports, gathering data to assess the effectiveness of restoration efforts and protecting the mitigation property and improvements are also part of the FY2015 Scope of Work.  The total work element budget being submitted with this Scope of Work is $310,000.
