Oxbow - Brownlee Subpopulation Status and Trends

Dillon, J. and S.A. Grunder. 2008. Management plan for the conservation of Snake River white sturgeon in Idaho. Idaho Department of Fish and Game, Boise, ID.

The Brownlee Dam to Oxbow Dam reach is a short river segment with suitable white sturgeon spawning habitat limited to the area below Brownlee Dam. The potential for natural recruitment in this reach is low due to lack of spawning habitat, water quality issues, and egg/larval transport out of the system. Managers have indicated that a self-sustaining population is not viable due to the current conditions.
