Description    


This project was a cooperative project between Trout Unlimited (TU), WDFW, USFS, Chelan County Public Works Dept. and others aimed at helping endangered spring Chinook salmon, endangered summer steelhead trout and other anadromous and resident salmonids (including threatened resident bull trout) within the lower Entiat River drainage. The project, designed & engineered by WDFW, created approximately 0.4 mile of high quality, year-round off-channel salmon & steelhead rearing habitat from an old side channel. The channel is fed from a buried water control intake/culvert. The old channel was excavated out and several hundred rock and log fish structures were buried in the new stream bed.

The site of the project is on WDFW-owned land adjacent the mainstem Entiat River at rivermile 6.5 just upstream of Roaring Creek. Lack of juvenile rearing habitat (particularly overwintering habitat) was identified in the 1999 Limiting Factors Analysis for the Entiat River as the most important limiting factor for salmonid production within the Entiat watershed.














Project Benefit    


The goal of the project is to connect isolated freshwater in-stream habitat to increase the range and distribution of salmon. The objective of the project is to increase access to freshwater in-stream side channels, oxbows, and other channels.
