Scott River Flow Restoration

The Scott River is a 60-mile long river in Siskiyou County, California and is a tributary of the Klamath River.

The Scott River is also a coho-producing tributary, and landowners in this watershed have helped to increase salmon populations by participating in seasonal water transactions. Scott River Water Trust will work to develop and manage agreements for seasonal water transfers with landowners.

This project will result in immediate improvement of stream conditions as water is returned to high priority rearing and spawning locations for coho salmon.

* Project supports voluntary transactions to change, reduce or stop water use – either temporarily or permanently – to protect or restore water for environmental benefit
