Summary / Abstract The Lolo Creek Watershed Restoration project (1996-07-02) has been an on-going project of the Nez Perce Tribe Fisheries Watershed Program and BPA since 1996. The ultimate goal of the project is to restore the physical and biological characteristics of the watershed to provide quality habitat for anadromous and resident fish species that support the historical, cultural and economic practices of the Nez Perce Tribe. The Lolo Creek watershed contains proposed critical habitat for listed species steelhead trout and potential critical habitat for bull trout; it has moderate habitat potential for spring Chinook salmon. Restoration in this watershed focuses on restoring riparian processes by addressing increased water temperatures, increased sedimentation, cattle grazing affects, fish passage issues, and noxious weed infestations. The project addresses passage problems, primarily at road/stream crossings, on both private and federal land and addresses riparian planting and riparian protection program management. Completed project work includes culvert prioritization and assessment, installation of an off-site watering site, 11 culvert replacements, 8 culvert removals, 1100 ft. of stream bank stabilization, 59 miles of road decommissioning, 19 miles of fence installation, over 12,000 riparian trees planted, and continued monitoring and evaluation.
