Population Monitoring

West Fork Smith River Technical Report

The salmon populations of the Smith River are some of the most intensively and extensively monitored in the Pacific Northwest. ODFW has beenconducting lifecycle monitoing of outmigrating juvenile salmonids and returning adult salmonids since 1998 in the West Fork of the Smith River. Check out the monitoring results in our fact sheet and technical report below. In partnership with Trout Unlimited we have installed a SONAR powered fish counter that allows us to enumerate adult salmon returns for the majority of the basin. Results will be posted soon.
