Description    


During the 2020 survey season, juvenile outmigration monitoring took place on Butte Creek at Parrott-Phelan Dam between 01/01/2020 and 06/12/2020 and began sampling again on 11/05/2020 ? 12/31/2020. Additionally, 23 juvenile spring-run Chinook salmon were acoustic tagged at Parrot-Phelan Dam between May 05/15/2020 ? 05/18/2020.The Butte Creek spring-run Chinook salmon (Oncoryhnchus tshawystcha) (SRCS) adult holding survey was conducted August 4 - 7, 2020. The Vaki RiverWatcher (Vaki) at Durham Mutual Fish Ladder was operated from 02/01/2018 through 06/30/20. A mark-recapture adult spawning survey (Cormack Jolly-Seber model) took place from 09/22/2020 through 11/05/2020 and was used to generate an escapement estimate to define the size of the spawning population.

Project Benefit    


The long-term data sets of all life stages of Butte Creek SRCS are essential in providing baseline population information and help serve as a metric for assessing recovery under the Endangered Species Act. Additionally, tracking populations trends helps to evaluate the collective effectiveness of Butte Creek habitat restoration.
