Salmonids fish census, fish size, water temperature, and dissolved oxygen data collected from Lawrence Creek, Van Duzen River watershed, California from 2015-12-14 to 2016-03-24 (NCEI Accession 0148459)

Juvenile coho salmon seek slow velocity areas as rivers rise during storm events. Studies have shown significant increase in juvenile coho salmon growth and survival when they have access to slow water refuge in off-channel ponds during these storms. In addition, off channel features also provide habitat for several other animals including reptiles, amphibians and numerous bird species. In 2014, Humboldt Redwood Company (HRC) identified an abandoned overflow channel that had the potential to become off channel habitat in Lawrence Creek located within the Van Duzen River watershed and asked the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to partner on the project. NMFS conducted the physical surveys, created the design, and a small competitive internal grant from NOAA provided funding for part of the project construction. HRC worked on the permits, donated heavy equipment and operators as well as several large logs with root wads to build the instream structures.
