Canyon-Owl Steelhead Habitat Enhancement

Project description

The Canyon-Owl Steelhead Enhancement project involved placing large wood into upper Canyon and Owl Creeks to improve spawning and rearing habitat for winter steelhead. The project utilized innovative structures in Canyon Creek that improve rearing  habitat for juvenile winter steelhead where Canyon and Owl Creeks converge. These structures, known as "island jams" and "meander jams,"  help capture material in the water, leading to the formation of gravel bars, pool formation, and ultimately channel stabilization so juvenile fish have ample habitat opportunities in this important stream reach.

The project partners included the Sweet Home Ranger District and Cascade Timber Consulting.
