    Description

    The Clark Canyon riparian demonstration area was established in 1984 within the East Walker River subbasin of Mono County, California. Destabilization of the meadow sections of the stream and the upper stream reaches contributed to an increase of suspended sediments, turbidity, and stream channel widening in the lower stream reaches where a viable population of rainbow trout is found. Several different treatments have been implemented to (1) restore meadow riparian areas to high levels of productivity, (2) stabilize active erosion and gully development (headcutting), (3) improve aquatic habitat from poor to good condition, and (4) improve wildlife cover and downstream fish habitat. These treatments include changes in grazing management practices and the construction of several types of instream structures.
