Document Description
The specific objective of this project is to improve passage to 3.4 miles of spawning and rearing habitat James Creek. The installation of a series of rock band weirs will increase the streambed height which will decrease the jump height at the falls form nine feet to 1.5 feet or less. The removal of a portion of the boulders and concrete slurry at the falls will widen the channel and improve the natural hydrology. Currently coho salmon are limited to using the 2,300 feet of stream below the falls for spawning and rearing. Habitat conditions upstream of the falls are good for spawning and rearing with year round flow and cool water temperatures. Improving passage at the bedrock falls will increase the quantity of instream habitat for spawning and rearing coho salmon.
