Project funds will be used by the  CTWSRO Branch of Natural Resources,  Hood River Production Program (HRPP)  to collect and report data to evaluate Hood River spring Chinook salmon and winter steelhead re-introduction / supplementation efforts relative to HRPP goals.

Fiscal Year 2016 contract tasks include:

-Estimate run year 2016 adult spring Chinook and hatchery winter steelhead returns.
-Develop spring Chinook harvest recommendation.
-Monitor and estimate 2016 tribal harvest at Punchbowl falls.
-Determine BY 14  hatchery smolt out migration timing.
-Document run year 2016 spring Chinook spawning locations, timing and success.
-Conduct juvenile Chinook salmon distribution surveys to document recolonization of the basin.
-Estimate spring Chinook salmon parr densities in the West Fork.
-Measure river flows and  water temperatures throughout the Hood River basin.
-Reconstruct run year 2015 harvest and escapement.
-Estimate the capture efficiency of the adult fish trap Moving Falls Fish Facility (MFFF) for spring Chinook salmon.
-Assisting Parkdale Fish Hatchery staff with various fish culture activities including implementing natural feeding program.
-Install, maintain and operate PIT receivers in the basin.
-Determine run type of wild  steelhead and origin of stray hatchery steelhead captured at MFFF trap.
-Report fiscal and calendar year 2015 findings to BPA.


During FY 16 NOAA will contract with BPA using funds from this project to publish results of 2008-2012 comparative hatchery evaluations and winter steelhead residualism research:
Tasks include:
1.Publish spring Chinook paper #4: Relations among winter growth, lipid reserves and early male maturation in hatchery reared spring Chinook salmon..
2. Provide assistance to HRPP with BY 14 and BY 15 spring Chinook precocity estimates for fish reared at PFH and Round Butte Hatchery/Pelton Ladder.
