This is an in-stream interrogation system consisting of two separate antennas, 7 meters apart and approximately 0.1 kilometers upstream from the mouth of Mission Creek, powered by a Destron Fearing FS1001M (labeled C0). The upstream antenna, C1, and downstream antenna, C2, each consist of a single fiberglass flat-plate antenna engineered by Biomark Inc. The antennas both cover the width of the stream in all but the highest spring discharges. MIS is operated by the University of Idaho, Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources in coordination with Bureau of Reclamation. Site is no longer active.
