DESCRIPTION
Kitsap County completed the final phase of instream restoration work associated with replacement of the 36-ft span Golf Club Hill Road fish barrier culvert with a 140-ft span bridge, which was funded separately by the Brian Abbott Fish Barrier Removal Board. Blackberries were removed, native riparian plantings were installed along approximately 1,000 linear feet downstream and approximately 800 linear feet upstream. At least 30 engineered log jams were installed throughout the project length as well. Stream banks were re-graded and sloped back to improve floodplain connection and allow channel meander and formation of gravel bars. Following theft of many plantings on the downstream property, an additional 2,000 riparian plantings were installed in February 2023. This phase also included development of a stewardship plan for the project area and negotiating a landowner agreement with the downstream landowner. The project successfully restored fish passage, opening more than 16 miles of habitat. The project restored stream, floodplain, and riparian processes that create and maintain habitat up and downstream, including sediment recruitment and transport, floodplain activation, stream channel meander, erosion and deposition, and wood recruitment. Chico Creek is the most productive wild salmon stream in Kitsap County, and this project provided direct benefits to habitat for chum, coho, Chinook, steelhead, and cutthroat trout.
