DESCRIPTION
Chico Creek flows to Dye's Inlet in Kitsap County and supports one of the largest runs of fall chum salmon (30,000-80,000 fish/year) in the west Puget Sound. It also supports coho, steelhead, cutthroat trout and occasional stray chinook salmon. Dyes Inlet, as well as most of Puget Sound, is also classified as Critical Area Habitat for Southern Resident Killer Whales (Orca).

This project was the construction of Phase 2 of the Chico Creek Instream Restoration, completing the creek reach restoration where Phase 1 left off in 2008 (SRFB #04-1209). The Phase 2 project removed the log weirs, established a more natural stream gradient, meander and floodplain, restored productive spawning habitat, restored the riparian area, and provided high flow refuge and facilitate upstream migration to the other 16 miles of habitat in the upper watershed.
