Description    


The objective of the Upper Chumstick Barrier Removal project was to improve migration of salmonids to and from historical spawning and rearing habitat along the upper portion of Chumstick Creek (RM 7.3-9.8). This project corrected five fish passage barriers. Four (Saliby, Ott/Johnson, Baumann, and Cann) replaced a culvert with new bridges, while one (Scheibler) replaced three rock barriers with three rock pool/chute fishways. Riparian planting was done at four worksites that included areas beyond the area impacted by the project including the Saliby, Ott/Johnson, Baumann, and Cann worksites. This completed a 15 year effort to remove over 30 barriers within the first 9.8 miles of Chumstick Creek. This effort increased spatial structure, abundance, and productivity of salmonids in the Wenatchee watershed. Due to development along the creek, a high concentration of stream crossings exist, some of which are barriers to salmonid migration. Barrier removal addressed two habitat limiting factors including up and downstream passage and riparian habitat.

Project Benefit    


Isolated habitat was connected and access was increased.

3 complete rock barriers removed at Scheiblers: RM 7.8, 7.89 and 7.97 (2011) and replaced with 3 fishways.

3 partial barrier culverts replaced at Ott, RM 8.23, Baumann, RM 8.51 and Cann, RM 8.59 (2012).

1 partial barrier culvert replaced at Saliby, RM 7.09 (2013).
