Program areas at California Trout

Fy2020 program accomplishmentscaltrout advances our mission and vision through five key initiatives, informed by our 2017 seminal report in partnership with uc davis center for watershed sciences on the status of California's 32 native salmon, steelhead, and Trout. The report, state of the salmonids ii: fish in hot water, found that 45% of these species will be extinct in 50 years if present trends continue. Our five key initiatives act on the threats identified in the sos ii report to create statewide impact and cross regional efficiencies. Our working model-applying a science-based, regional approach to finding pragmatic solutions that work for diverse interestscontinues to differentiate us from other conservation groups and make us a trusted, relied-upon source that can gets the job done.1. Protect the best - keep salmon and steelhead strongholds and wild Trout waters intact and protected.2. Reconnect habitat - give wild fish access to diverse habitats by removing barriers and getting obsolete dams out.3. Integrate wild fish and working landscapes - balance the needs of fish and people by reestablishing resilient wild fish populations and natural processes within managed landscapes.4. Steward source water areas - ensure water security for fish and people by protecting and restoring our vital source water areas especially mountain 5. Restore estuaries - nurture and restore the vital land-sea interface.winter-run chinook - new habitat access on battle creekall planning, permitting and design was completed this year, and we moved into the pre-construction and project layout phase. A crane access road and pad were built, canyon walls were secured to prevent rockfall during channel reconstruction, and nepa mitigation requirements were completed. Revitalizing pescadero marshin 2020, caltrout and our partners extended the pilot project by purchasing hundreds of additional pit tags and bolstering the antennas on pescadero creek. Caltrout also continued to assist cdfw in annual mark-recapture surveys in the pescadero lagoon to tag and re-collect steelhead and assess their population. This pilot project has shown itself to be a valuable proof of concept for cost-effective fish tracking and monitoring and is now expanding.santa margarita barrier removalthis past year, caltrout secured funding through the California department of fish and wildlife to complete the project design and permitting. Construction is slated to begin in 2021 making the santa margarita river the first to return full watershed access to southern steelhead. Construction is slated to begin in 2021 making the santa margarita river the first to return full watershed access to southern steelhead. Mid-klamath basinin 2020, the team secured all permits and completed designs for the parks creek project. We also broke ground on construction, including installation of a new pump station with upgraded fish screens. The project is essential for recovering salmon populations throughout the mid-klamath basin because degraded flows, water quality, and habitat conditions continue to limit spawning and rearing in vital cold-water tributary streams. The project has the triple benefit of enhancing stream flows, increasing irrigation efficiency, and removing a major fish barrier. Aquatic species assessment tool (asat)the conceptual framework for the tool was developed this year and a technical advisory committee was assembled, comprising scientific and programmatic professionals. End users were also determined for the tool to identify multi-species abundance in response to specific estuary management actions. Working toward diversity, equity, inclusion, and justicecaltrout began our diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice (deij) work this past year. We provided staff training through unconscious bias workshops and created a deij steering committee comprised of our increasingly diverse staff from every department and organizational level, as well as members of our board. The committee has held visioning sessions and topic-specific consultations. Task forces were created within the committee to address deij issues in our communications, policies, and partnerships, with specific emphasis on tribal partners. The committee is guiding the planning stage of our initiative and ensuring transparency and accountability in the process. Caltrout is committed to working on issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice as an ongoing process that requires a continually adaptive approach.scott dam - potter valley project this past year also saw significant progress with the potter valley project and the potential removal of scott dam. In april, the two-basin partnership comprising California Trout, sonoma water, humboldt county, mendocino county inland water and power, and round valley indian tribes-proposed an ambitious plan to advance restoration of eel river fisheries while maintaining water security for russian river basin water users. The feasibility study and project plan was filed with ferc as the next step in the effort toward securing a new license for the potter valley project, which is currently owned by pg&e.
