This study will be conducted during 3 years with sufficient flows and number of smolts. Due to the patterns of dry and wet years for this region it may take as many as 10 years to get the desired 3 years of data. Therefore, the duration of coverage requested by this permit covers about a 10-year period from January 2006 through July 2015. Elise Kelley has requested an annual non-lethal take of up to 575 steelhead. The annual unintentional lethal take that may occur during data collection is up to 16 steelhead or no more than 3 per cent of the total captured. Dated: November 29, 2006.
