Description    


This restoration project increased riparian and floodplain function in 3 spring fed tributaries to the Little Washougal River. We addressed tributary spawning and rearing habitat in Reach 1 of the Little Washougal River on property owned by the Stauffer family. The LCFEG has completed several fish passage, off-channel rearing and LWD placement projects throughout the length of this watershed and this project was a continuation of restoring former and active agricultural lands in the lower mile of the watershed. The project reach is important to recovery of salmon as it represents the only low gradient tributary to the Washougal River with enough size to facilitate substantial production of wild salmon and steelhead. This stream currently supports a primary population of chinook and a contributing population of coho salmon, as well as a contributing population of winter steelhead.

ESA listed fish in the Little Washougal include chinook and coho salmon; and winter steelhead. Project partners include the Stauffer family, Camas Alternative High School Program and WADOC.

Project Benefit    


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