Description    


One rotary screw trap (RST) was operated on the Shasta River from the end of January to the end of June, 2020, and also January to June, 2021. The RST was used to sample all age classes of emigrating Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon, and steelhead trout. For the period sampled in 2020, an estimated 3,115,774 0+, and 1,194 1+ Chinook Salmon; 1,233 0+, and 291 1+ Coho Salmon; and 12,192 0+; 6,530 1+; 52,339 2+, and 4,460 3+ steelhead trout emigrated from the Shasta River.

One rotary screw trap was operated on the Scott River from the beginning of February to the end of June, 2020, and also February to June 2021. The RST was used to sample all age classes of emigrating Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon , and steelhead trout. For the period sampled in 2020, we estimated that a total of 391,643 0+, and 2,000 1+ Chinook Salmon; 105 0+ and 14,628 1+ Coho Salmon; and 291,431 0+, 81,916 1+, 31,845 2+, and five 3+ steelhead trout emigrated from the Scott River.

Project Benefit    


In 2005, Coho Salmon of the Southern Oregon/Northern California Coast Evolutionary Significant Unit were listed as a threatened species from the Oregon border to Punta Gorda, California under the California Endangered Species Act. The data collected from the RSTs on both the Scott and Shasta River represent one of the only long-term monitoring datasets for Coho Salmon populations and other target species, which can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of restoration projects that are intended to increase juvenile salmonid production and survival. Additionally, evaluating abundance, timing, and fork length of the outmigration salmonids, provides indications to habitat conditions and distribution.
