The Spokane Tribe of Indian Department of Natural Resources wants to construct a spawning channel for fall Kokanee Salmon spawning in Enté Creek. The current creek houses several degraded beaver dams which have filled in with sediment to create a swamp-like environment at the mouth of the creek. The beaver dams themselves present major fish passage barriers. In addition to the dams, the flow in the stream is too shallow for fish passage. We will conduct an analysis to determine the current ecological health of the stream, as well as all current barriers to fish passage. Streamline Solutions will then create a final design that the Spokane Tribe of Indians can implement to restore Kokanee Salmon spawning to Enté Creek.
