Initial results from monitoring experiments completed by Cramer Fish Sciences fisheries biologists are available! Key findings include:

  • Non-native predatory fish (largemouth bass and sunfish) have been observed within the large backwater pool at the lower end of the Project reach.
  • Rearing habitat quality dramatically alters residence time and survival of juvenile Chinook salmon.
  • Some predators may be having a disproportionately big effect.
