The goal of the project is to restore salmonid spawning, rearing and holding habitat in order to recover self-sustaining salmonid runs to harvestable levels, by addressing limiting factors in the reach. To achieve this goal, this project will seek to improve connectivity with off channel habitat, increase available thermal refuge for salmonids during summer months, and increase key habitat quantity by creating pools associated with logjams as areas of refuge for salmonids. The risk of inaction to the South Fork Early Chinook population is great; the total population has been estimated to be as few as 19 fish. Ensuring that high quality, stable habitat is created as quickly as possible is critical to preserving the South Fork stock. The Larson's Reach Phase 2 In-stream Restoration Project is listed
