|To improve fish access and the quality and quantity of fish habitat on subject channels [refer to enclosed maps] by improving channel definition, reducing overbank flows, and reducing the extent or likelihood of diversions. Treatments include removing small woody debris (SWD) by hand, roughening fan and floodplain environments, manipulating existing large woody debris (LWD), adding large woody|
debris from adjacent areas by hand, and beaching abandoned beaver dams. Coho salmon, rainbow trout, and Dolly Varden char are the target species.
Similar work was done on the Mamin River and Datlamen Creek tributaries in 2005, 2006, and 2007. A review of completed work revealed good results with respect to project objectives as well as an opportunity to improve results with follow-up SWD removal and LWD addition. Suitable sites for new treatment were also identified in the Gold Creek watershed.
