Cummings Creek Large Wood Enhancement Project
Cummings Creek, one of the most productive steelhead producing tributaries in the Tucannon River Basin (~RM37.85), also contains rainbow and bull trout populations.
Cummings Creek, one of the most productive steelhead producing tributaries in the Tucannon River Basin (~RM37.85), also contains rainbow and bull trout populations. A fish kill was reported over a 2 mile reach in association with the School Canyon fire in 2005. This project was a cooperative project between CTUIR, the United States Forest Service (USFS) and Washington Department Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). The lower 3-4 miles of Cummings Creek is located on state-owned land. Large wood treatments were intermittently spaced throughout the reach, concentrating on RM 2-4 where dead or unhealthy stands of trees were observed . Trees that were located in close proximity to the stream were felled into the wetted channel of the stream.
