DESCRIPTION
North Fork Nooksack early Chinook are considered essential for ESU recovery, but natural origin productivity and abundances are low. The Nooksack Indian Tribe (NIT) constructed 34 engineered log jams in the North Fork Nooksack River, RM 53.8-54.2, to increase channel stability and protect and encourage growth of maturing forested islands in the main channel. This project was Phase 2 of a larger project to restore the North Fork Nooksack River throughout the Wildcat Reach (53.3-54.8). The project was considered Tier 1 (highest) priority for chinook in WRIA 1 2011 SRFB project guidance. Protecting and encouraging growth of forested channel islands will ultimately increase spawning-to-incubation success by restoring the island braided planform historically evident in the North Fork.
