During the last few years, Friends of The East Fork, whose membership is made up of local landowners and Clark County residents, has been working with Fish First of the North Fork, which is a very active fish and stream restoration group located out of nearby Woodland, WA. We also work selectively with other local land stewardship/conservation groups to reverse the deteriorating channel conditions on the river and to restore the fish habitat. Friends has teamed up with Fish First using their professional “Stream Restoration Team” experience and learning from their success gained in doing over 8 miles of stream and fish habitat restoration on Cedar Creek, which is part of the North Fork of the Lewis River and just to the north of the East Fork.
In the last few years through cooperation with Fish First and grant funding, we have been doing similar projects on the lower East Fork. Working with landowners, we have completed 4 major restoration projects on the East Fork and it’s tributary streams. We will be doing at least 2 more in the near future, but we need continued support and involvement to maintain progress.
