DESCRIPTION
this project will construct 20 log jams in a 0.5-mile river segment, as part of the first of three phases of restoration planned in the broader Nesset reach (10.3-12). Log jams are designed to: (1) increase number and depth of pools; (2) increase habitat unit diversity and quantity of complex woody cover in the low-flow channel; (3) increase availability of temperature refuges; and (4) improve incubation success and flood refuge habitat by improving connectivity of floodplain and floodplain channels. Other species benefitting are ESA-listed steelhead and bull trout; coho, chum, riverine sockeye, and pink salmon; and cutthroat trout.
