Restoration Stories

West Weaver Creel

In 2017, the West Weaver Creek Salmonid Habitat Rehabilitation Project was completed, restoring channel and floodplain connectivity and improving salmonid habitat along with natural creek function. Specific actions included increasing riffle pool, step pool and boulder cascades; augmenting spawning gravel; adding large wood structures and willow clumps to create habitat in-channel and sediment recruitment on floodplain; and grading floodplain to raise water surface elevation and improve connectivity. Trinity County RCD partnered with CA Dept. of Water Resources, Trinity River Restoration Program, private property owners, ESA consultants and state and federal agencies.
