Fish habitat project planned on Beaver Creek is combined effort
Posted: Wednesday, Aug 3rd, 2011
This month, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Lincoln Soil and Water Conservation District will place 60 large logs in a three-quarter mile stretch of Beaver Creek in order to provide better habitat for trout and salmon smolts.
Not to be confused with the Beaver Creek that is located several miles south of Newport, this Beaver Creek is a tributary of Depot Slough, which flows into the Yaquina River near Toledo. It is a short, 7.4-mile stream with relatively healthy runs of Oregon coastal coho salmon, fall chinook salmon, winter steelhead and cutthroat trout. The logs will be placed in a stretch of the creek along Highway 20 between mileposts 4 and 5.
