Help coming to make Central Kitsap streams friendlier to fish

August 7, 2019by ncdea

WASHINGTON, Kitsap CD – The Kitsap Conservation District and the Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group will work to remove barriers to fish migration and re-establish natural creek channels and floodplains with two projects in Central Kitsap.

The Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office in partnership with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife awarded Kitsap County $2.5 million for two projects: removing a Seabeck Creek culvert under Seabeck Holly Road Northwest and taking out structures preventing passage at Dickerson Creek.

Kitsap Conservation District’s Dickerson Creek project requires renovation of nearly 750 feet of creek channels and 2.5 acres of floodplain on four privately owned properties.

“There’s not good fish passage or spawning, which makes this project even more critical,” said, Carin Anderson, Stream Stewards-Backyard Habitat program manager for the Kitsap Conservation District.
