Measuring Success of Battle Creek Restoration

Measuring Success of Battle Creek Restoration

CalTrout’s restoration project site in Eagle Canyon on Battle Creek recently received a visit and inspection by our Mt. Shasta-Klamath Region Director, Damon Goodman. Last year, we completed construction at this site to remove a rock barrier in the canyon that had been blocking fish passage. As a result, more than 8 miles of anadromous habitat became available for endangered winter-run Chinook salmon, with the first cohort this spring traveling from the ocean high into source waters along North Fork Battle Creek, the same reach of creek that was just restored.
