JA1 - Jacks Creek Seasonal IPTDS

Status:   Active - Operations Unspecified
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Nez Perce Tribe
General Operational Period: Seasonally
Start Date: 1/26/2021 12:00 AM

Jacks Creek is a tributary of the lower Clearwater River, Idaho. The confluence of Jacks Creek is on the south side of the Clearwater River at river kilometer 47. Jacks Creek is about 10 miles long, drains about 15,000 acres, and is a minor spawning area for Snake River summer steelhead within the Lower Mainstem Clearwater steelhead population. The Jacks Creek interrogation site was installed as a temporary and seasonal site downstream of river kilometer 1 to estimate steelhead abundance within the Jacks Creek spawning aggregate because an interrogation sites downstream of the Lower Mainstem Clearwater capable of providing a population estimate for the population does not exist.
