Adult Spawning Surveys
Spawning surveys are conducted for Chinook, coho, and chum salmon, steelhead, and lamprey eels. All Surveys are coordinated with ODFW Oregon Adult Salmonid Inventory & Sampling Project for consistency. Data collected include numbers of each species and redds. Bio-information includes length, sex, scale samples (to determine age), collect snouts on tagged (hatchery) fish, DNA (when requested), and other basin specific projects. The surveys we do are:
