Project Summary

Project 1998-020-00 - Walla Walla River Habitat Assessment
Project Number:
1998-020-00
Title:
Walla Walla River Habitat Assessment
Summary:
This project will assess distribution and abundance of salmonids and monitor their habitat conditions. Approximately 60 water temperature monitors will be deployed and downloaded in various stream reaches in the Washington portion of the Walla Walla Basin. Numerous water discharge sites will be monitored either continuously during low flow periods, or at least every two weeks. Electrofishing or snorkeling will be employed during summer or other low flow periods to determine salmonid distribution and relative abundance. Spawning surveys for bull trout, steelhead and spring chinook will be conducted in the WA portion of the basin. Genetic samples will be collected and some genetic analysis will occur from time to time. We will coordinate our efforts with CTUIR, ODFW and others. Data summaries will be distributed in season or as rapidly as possible. Annual reports will be distributed to others working within the basin.
