Project: Little Shasta Passage Project

Description: This Project will complete elimination of a temporal migration barrier currently blocking access to up to seven kilometers of ideal cold-water spawning and over-summering habitat for juvenile coho salmon habitat in the Little Shasta River. The project will also result in habitat enhancement, improved ecological function, and improved stream flow at critical times of the year for outmigrating juvenile coho salmon.

Reference Number: 3600BP1896006

Implemented By: California Trout, Inc.

Objective: Specific objectives of this Project are to: (1) remove of the existing concrete dam, fish screen and old fish ladder walls; (2) construct approximately 105 linear feet of roughened channel at three percent grade to provide fish passage; (3) construct a new cast-in-place concrete diversion structure with fish screen and fish return bypass that meets current NOAA and CDFW fish protection criteria; (4) revegetate the channel restoration site.
