2007-398-00 YAKIMA TRIBUTARY ACCESS & HABITAT PROGRAM (YTAHP)

Anadromous Fish Habitat and Hatchery Review

​The Yakima Tributary Access & Habitat Program (YTAHP) is a direct result of the listing of Middle Columbia River Steelhead under the Endangered Species Act in 1999.  Many factors, occurring over more than a century, have contributed to a decline in native salmonid populations.  In the Yakima River Basin, restoring the quantity, quality, connectivity and functions of tributary habitat is a high priority for salmon and steelhead recovery. 

The Yakima Tributary Access & Habitat Program fills a unique and important role in salmonid recovery by fostering a partnership between federal and state agencies, the Yakama Nation, non-profit groups, conservation districts, irrigation entities and private landowners to accomplish meaningful habitat restoration projects.
