Welcome to the Home of CRBC’s Technical Data

Here you’ll find information about watershed assessments and assessments of fish passage barriers performed throughout the Clackamas Basin.

The CRBC’s Basin Action Plan (BAP) was completed in 2005. This plan is a great starting place for general information about the Clackamas.

Clackamas Focused Investment Partnership (FIP) Strategic Restoration Action Plan was published in 2018 to guide restoration actions designed to improve river and stream habitat and the environment that sustains native fish populations. This Strategic Plan was developed by more than fifteen Portland metropolitan region organizations.

If you’re interested in more information about Rock Creek in particular, check out Clackamas County Service District Number 1’s Watershed Action Plan for Rock Creek and Kellogg-Mt. Scott, which was completed in 2009.

These watershed assessments contain information about geology, fish distribution, streamside shade, and water quality. The Rock and Richardson assessment was prepared by EcoTrust in 2000. The Clear and Foster Watershed Assessment and Deep and Goose Watershed Assement were prepared by the Watershed Professionals Network in 2002 and 2005, respectively.

Fish passage barrier assessments were completed for Clear and Foster Creeks in 2003 (by Watersheds Northwest) and Deep, Goose, and Eagle Creek in 2005 (by the Watershed Professionals Network). Fish passage barriers identified include items such as culverts, weirs, and abandoned pipes. CRBC works with private landowners, government agencies, and professional contractors to seek out grant funds to remove these barriers and replace them with fish-friendly alternatives where appropriate.
