Little River Restoration II

Restoration Stories

Little River

11 log structures along a 0.5 mile stretch of Little River were added this year. The additional wood will provide low velocity refuge for young of the year coho salmon during heavy runoff events, allow for deeper summertime pools, and maintain a complex geomorphic environment with increased edge habitat. Enhancement using a variety of LWD augmentation methods is also increasing shelter values, allowing improved rearing habitat, as well as secondary effects of improving spawning conditions and water quality. This project was performed in cooperation with Pacific Watershed Associates, private landowners, heavy equipment operators, and funded by CDFW’s Fisheries Restoration Grant Program.
