Little Gunnuk Creek Site Visit - Kake, Alaska
Little Gunnuk Creek is located in the Little Gunnuk watershed, approximately 0.25 miles southeast of the Gunnuk Creek Hatchery in Kake, Alaska. It is a Class 1 salmon stream near the estuary, and likely becomes a Class 2 resident fish stream (cutthroat trout, Dolly Varden char) past the cascades upstream of the old dam, approximately 0.25 miles from the road crossing in Kake. This stream was harvested to the banks in 1980 near the headwaters, upstream and immediately downstream of the crossing on Road 6308 in the upper portion of the watershed. This report is a summary of a field visit conducted on 9/09/08 to 9/11/08. The goal was to answer basic questions about the channel and riparian condition, and to assess the potential to restore degraded habitat.
