Description    


We completed 168 surveys in 20 main and seven sub-reaches in Mill Creek during the 2020-2021 survey period which extended from November 1, 2020 through March 15, 2021 (see attached Data Compilation: SGSSummary_Mill Cr 2020 2021.xls).We completed 168 surveys in 20 main and seven sub-reaches in Prairie Creek during the 2020-2021 survey period which extended from November 1, 2020 through March 15, 2021 (see attached Data Compilation: SGSSummary_Prairie Cr 2020 2021.xls).

Project Benefit    


Marked population declines of Coho Salmon populations in all freshwater habitats in California have led to both federal and state listings under the federal (ESA) and California (CESA) Endangered Species Acts (Federal Register 1997, CDFG 2002). Both listings have initiated the development of recovery plans that include delisting goals (CDFG 2004, NOAA 2014) for the Southern Oregon Northern California Coho (SONCC) ESU. Monitoring population abundance is essential to evaluating the success of recovery efforts.
