Final Round ISRP Rating: Meets Scientific Review Criteria
Final Round ISRP Comment:
The project sponsors have provided a thorough and convincing response to the ISRP's questions. The clarification that the outlet of the Fender Mill side channel is perennially connected to the mainstem Methow addresses our concern about the possibility of juvenile stranding. The response that brook trout already spawn in the main Methow River and are free to move back and forth between the mainstem and the complex of side channels and ponds reduces our concern that the project could serve as a source of brook trout. Both the issues of monitoring and the relationship of this project to others nearby are adequately addressed. The inclusion of a more comprehensive outreach effort not only addresses an ISRP concern but should provide benefits for those planning to implement similar projects elsewhere in the basin. We also appreciate the overall emphasis on restoring natural channel processes and floodplain functions in a reach that is heavily used by salmon and steelhead. The sponsors are complimented for the completeness and professionalism of their response to the ISRP comments.
