Klondike Creek Fish Passage Enhancement Project Draft EA

Development, Improvements, and Enhancements


The Future Fisheries Improvement Program is proposing to provide partial funding to a project calling for the replacement of an undersized culvert located at a U.S. Forest Service road crossing on Klondike Creek with a free-span concrete bridge. The existing 48-inch in diameter culvert is undersized, impedes upstream fish passage in higher flows and is causing impairments to the stream channel. Replacing this culvert with a bridge would improve migratory connectivity to approximately 3 miles of upper Klondike Creek. The intent of the project is to improve upstream fish passage for a non-hybridized population of westslope cutthroat trout. The project site is located on Klondike Creek approximately 4 miles northwest of the town of Lincoln in Lewis and Clark County.
