Russian River Salmon and Steelhead Monitoring Program
Publication Date

In this annual report, we provide results from drought monitoring in support of salmonid recovery actions in the Russian River watershed across five subtasks, including snorkel surveys, wet/dry mapping, flow monitoring training, fish rescue support, and participation in CDFW’s Salmonid Habitat Restoration Priorities (SHaRP) meetings. Results from additional studies are included in this report, including snorkel surveys in the four Broodstock Program watersheds (funded by US Army Corps of Engineers), snorkel surveys in Yellowjacket Creek (funded by National Marine Fisheries Service), and wet/dry mapping in Green Valley, Mark West, Pena, and Mill creeks (funded by Wildlife Conservation Board).
