Objective: Increase habitat complexity and stream function in an area juvenile coho utilize for summer and fall rearing. This information was gained during the Coho eDNA and dive study conducted in 2020.

Project Description: Hoopa Valley Tribal Fisheries Department will restore a simplified and entrenched section of Hostler creek using a combination of large wood additions and a beaver dam analog. This restoration effort will improve gravel sorting, increase channel depth and topographic complexity.

Project Benefit    

Project Benefits: SONCC in the lower Trinity River are identified in the Recovery Plan as being at high risk of extinction. Restoration of tributary habitat for both natal and non-natal SONCC is therefore of great importance. This project improves stream function and increases the amount of high-quality habitat available for juvenile salmonids.

Priority One – Priority One projects benefiting ESA-listed populations shall address the limiting factors and priority actions specified in NOAA approved, interim, or proposed Recovery Plans and projects benefiting populations important to the exercise of tribal treaty fishing rights or native subsistence fishing may include efforts to restore or maintain such populations while limiting factors are being assessed.
