Develop and implement a coordinated monitoring and evaluation plan to assess the effectiveness of habitat restoration measures throughout the subbasin.All aquatic focal species
Develop and implement a coordinated monitoring and evaluation plan to evaluate the effectiveness of steelhead artificial propagation measures in the subbasin.All aquatic focal species
Establish a subbasin-wide database to facilitate monitoring and evaluation of sedimentation trends and provide information relative to its effect on salmonid production.All aquatic focal species
Evaluate effects of diseases and parasites on bull trout, and develop and implement strategies to minimize negative effects.Bull Trout
Habitat diversity shall be restored as near as possible to historic conditions, as a result of restoring channel conditions and riparian conditionsAll aquatic focal species
High and low water temperatures and dissolved oxygen conditions shall be restored as near as possible to historic conditions, as a result of restoring channel conditions, reducing sediment loads, improving riparian conditions, and improving low flow conditionsAll aquatic focal species
Identify and prioritize for modification, structural barriers that limit connectivity.All aquatic focal species
Identify evaluations needed to improve understanding of relationships among genetic characteristics, phenotypic traits, and local populations of bull trout.Bull Trout

Increase total adult returns to greater than 5,000 to 16,000 (currently 250 to 3,000)Spring Chinook
Localized impacts due to Pollutants are expected to be reduced as ongoing best management practices are implemented that will reduce inputs of pollutants across the landscape.All aquatic focal species
Restore flows in limited reaches to support resident and anadromous fish needs.All aquatic focal species
To achieve bull trout distribution criteria, as defined in USFWS (2002), maintain or expand current distribution of bull trout throughout the Grande Ronde River Recovery Unit until bull trout are distributed among at least nine local populations.Bull Trout
To enhance low flow conditions such that they mimic the natural hydrograph to the extent possible, given the limitations posed by agriculturally dependent water use in the region.All aquatic focal species
To have a distribution of riparian communities having 1) a species composition, 2) size, and 3) structure that is appropriate for the channel type and ecoregion, recognizing that the distribution will also vary in time in response to natural disturbance factors.All aquatic focal species
To have a distribution of sediment type and size structure that is appropriate for the channel type, geology and ecoregion, recognizing that the distribution will also vary in time in response to natural disturbance factors.All aquatic focal species
To have both a 1) distribution of channel types (e.g., Rosgen (1996) channel types1), as well as 2) a distribution of habitat conditions within those channel types, that are as close as possible to the historic distribution of these two variables within the subbasin.All aquatic focal species
Using ODEQs guidelines, reduce stream temperatures in listed segments so cold water biota beneficial uses are restored.All aquatic focal species
