Description    


Fish First used this funding to restore degraded salmonid spawning habitat, improve stream complexity, and recover and restore rearing habitat on 0.4 miles of the Amboy to Yacolt reach of Cedar Creek, a tributary of the North Fork of the Lewis River in Clark County.

According to the draft WRIA 27 Limiting Factors Report: The Cedar Creek watershed provides the majority of spawning and rearing habitat left for all species of anadromous fish in the NF Lewis River system. Present in the Cedar Creek system are Chinook, coho, cutthroat and steelhead. The Draft WRIA 27 Limiting Factors Report and the Lower Columbia Steelhead Conservation Initiative both identify the system as sanctuary habitat in need of protection and restoration.

The project locations have historically provided excellent spawning and rearing habitat that had become seriously degraded due to past removal of most large woody debris. The removal has resulted in loss of stream complexity, spawning gravel locked up in a mix of cobble and substrate fines, and loss of access to high-quality rearing habitat. This project continued work done in 1999 (Phase 1) of the project by developing in-stream spawning beds anchored by large rock vanes, and adding root wads.

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.
