Project Area 1&3 Tucannon River Mile 46.80-50.10 Floodplain Restoration
The upper reaches of the Tucannon River provide important spawning and rearing habitat for Lower Snake River ESU spring Chinook, summer steelhead and bull trout.
The upper reaches of the Tucannon River provide important spawning and rearing habitat for Lower Snake River ESU spring Chinook, summer steelhead and bull trout. Sub-optimal habitat diversity and KEY habitat (pools) quantity are considered to be the primary limiting factors in this reach, while peak flow increases and channel confinement are considered secondary limiting factors. In the summer of 2014 CTUIR's Tucannon fish habitat biologist implemented a large wood supplementation project between river miles 46.75 and 50.10 in an effort to address the primary limiting factors of this reach.
