Description    


This project installed over 370 pieces of large wood and 400 cubic yards of large diameter boulders in Reach 13 of the Upper Washougal River to induce sediment deposition over exposed bedrock channels. The project significantly increased pool habitat area resulting in complex juvenile rearing and adult holding cover, and increased the potential for riffle-pool habitat to form over time. The project is intended to benefit the Washougal summer steelhead population which was identified by the Technical Review Team as a core population due to its productive capacity, and as a genetic Legacy population due to its reproductive isolation from hatchery influence. The project, constructed on property owned by DNR and Longview Timber, covers 6,300 LF of mainstem channels in EDT Reach 13, a high priority (Tier 1) reach for restoration of summer steelhead habitat. In addition to mainstem reaches this project also installed large wood and boulders in Dougan and Reeder creek to enhance habitat and fish passage capacity. This project effectively completes instream restoration in Reach 13 except as necessary or feasible to increase the pace of instream habitat evolution which is constrained by low sediment supply.

Project Benefit    


The goal of the project was to improve instream morphology and habitat in salmon bearing streams. The objective of the project was to increase instream cover, spawning, and resting areas.
