FISHERIES GOALS:

MAXIMIZING SURVIVAL RATES OF FRY IN THE SYSTEM BY MINIMIZING RAMP RATES OF FLOW INCREASES WITH VARIABLE INFLOWS AS PROJECTS GET HIGHER IN THE POOL.  MITIGATING WARM TEMPERATURES IN THE SYSTEM THROUGH AUGMENTATION WITH LOST CREEK FLOWS.  MINIMIZE THE PROPORTION OF FALL CHINOOK THAT SPAWN ABOVE GOLD RAY DAM.
