First Round ISRP Comment:

There seems to be a high probability that the acquisitions/easements proposed for this project will benefit anadromous fish populations in the Lemhi River. Increasing flow in tributaries and reconnecting them with the mainstem Lemhi River alone may confer very substantial benefits. However, there was not enough detail provided in the proposal to conduct a thorough technical assessment. In addition, the closely linked nature of this proposal for acquisitions and conservation easements with the project that will implement restoration actions at these sites (Upper Lemhi River Restoration Project #2008-602-00) suggests that the two projects should be reviewed in tandem or combined into a single project. In addition, the following items should be included in a revised proposal: • A set of maps that clearly indicates the location of the project properties and the location of the restoration projects to be implemented on the properties • More detail on the guidance given to those who participated in prioritizing acquisition/easement projects • A list of scores for all properties assessed and an explanation why the selected properties were considered the best options • More detail on how improvements in Chinook and steelhead egg-smolt survival rates were estimated • A description of how the proportion of a limiting factor within the watershed addressed with the application of each restoration action was estimated and how these improvements are translated into benefits for the fish • A better description of the linkage between this project and ISEMP and other ongoing M&E efforts in the Lemhi watershed • A clear description of the role each participating organization plays in this project
