This chapter focuses on the restoration of the rivers of the Klamath region. The Trinity River Restoration Program proposed four river-building processes: water flow, vegetation, channel morphology, and sediment management. Efforts to restore the Klamath River's anandromous fish populations are ongoing, but have made less progress than was originally hoped for. Along the Klamath River, watershed restoration is under way, at Bluff Creek, at Elk Creek, in the Scott River, and in the upper basin.
