Abstract: Because Port Dick Creek experienced declines in total returns since 1987, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game conducted a five-year feasibility analysis and initiated Trustee Council funded efforts to restore spawning habitat in two former tributaries taken out of production by the 1964 Alaska earthquake. Approximately 3,000 cubic meters of material was excavated from both tributaries, and since 1996 over 3,300 pink and chum salmon have colonized and spawned in the new habitat. To date, spawning adults of both species potentially deposited over 5,000,000 eggs with over 458,000 fry estimated emerging from the tributaries. In FY 00, additional sedimentologic parameters (bedload transport, accumulated sediments and gravel/cobble transport rates) will be further evaluated to support the stability analyses of the project.
