RCJ - Rock Creek John Day Basin

Status:   Active - Non-Operational
Site Type: Instream Remote Detection System  |  Organization: Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 9/30/2014 12:00 AM

This site is located at rkm 2.0 on Rock Creek (ROCK4C) a tributary to the John Day River. Rock Creek is the downstream most eastern shore perennial tributary of the John Day River. The RCJ array consists of two standalone IS1001 ACNs which drive two 10 ft Biomark Bio-Lite antennas. The two antennas are staggered up and downstream to provide directional detection capabilities. The antennas do not cover the entire wetted width of the stream at low-flow, but are staggered to provide coverage presuming a straight line of fish travel. The site is operated on grid power, without battery backup. The RCJ array is manually downloaded at least monthly during the migration season (October to May), and at least every other month during June to September.
