Steelhead Restoration Projects

Revenue received from Steelhead Report Card sales may only be expended to monitor, restore, or enhance steelhead trout resources consistent with Fish and Game Code sections 6901 and 6902, and to administer the Steelhead Report Card program. Each year, the Department offers a public solicitation notice for grant proposals. The Fisheries Restoration Grant Program administers this process and forwards responsive proposals to the Advisory Committee on Salmon and Steelhead Trout for review and comment prior to the award of funding. Typical projects include: assessing angler harvest, restoring spawning and rearing habitat, securing adequate flows, and removing barriers to migration.
