To develop series data on chinook salmon response to annual fluctuations in water temperature and flow at the Michie Creek chinook spawning site. The project focuses each year on maintaining access of adult chinook salmon to critical spawning habitat in the drainage. Adult salmon and associated redds are enumerated at the Michie Creek spawning site and the relative abundance of wild and hatchery-origin juveniles is determined through minnow trapping. Freshwater benthic invertebrates are sampled each year to determine diversity and relative abundance at the Michie Creek spawning site.
