Winter Steelhead Range [ds699]

Metadata Updated: September 17, 2019

June 2012 Version Data Content: This data set contains all CalWater 2.2.1 Planning Watersheds (PWS) where CDFW has documented winter run steelhead to be present during or after 1990. It was developed for the express purpose of assisting with anadromous fish recovery planning efforts. NOTE: Acreages are calculated for area inside California only. It is important to note that this data set does not attempt to model the entire possible distribution of the species. Rather, it only represents planning watersheds intersecting the known distribution, which is based on where the species has been observed and reported. While the distribution data may indeed represent the extent of the species, generally the upstream extent of the distribution only represents the location of positive sampling or other observations.. Therefore, this data set likely represents an underestimation of the absolute geographic distribution of the species. Data Source: This watershed level data set was derived by intersecting Calwater planning watersheds with point and line features depicting winter run steelhead distribution. These features are derived from a subset of data contained in the Aquatic Species Observation Database (ASOD), a Microsoft Access multi-species observation data capture application. ASOD is an ongoing project developed by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), Northern Region, Environmental Resource Information Services with assistance from CDFW Biogeographic Data Branch and Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission. These data are based upon confirmed observations of Coho salmon. Effort has been made to identify and correct watersheds that were erroneously selected due to inaccuracies from using data of different scales. The observation data that are the basis for the distribution were compiled from a variety of disparate sources including but not limited to CDFW, U.S. Forest Service, National Marine Fisheries Service, timber companies, and the public. Forms of documentation include CDFW administrative reports, personal communications with biologists, observation reports, and literature reviews. This derived dataset is meant to be continually updated as additional information is acquired. As such, any copy of this dataset is considered to be a snapshot of the known Winter Run Steelhead Distribution at the time of release. It is incumbent upon the user to ensure that they have the most recent version prior to making management or planning decisions. Data Usage: Examples of appropriate uses include: Anadromous fish recovery planning Evaluation of future survey sites for Steelhead Validating steelhead distribution models Examples of inappropriate uses include: Using this data to make parcel or ground level land use management decisions. Using this data set to prove or support non-existence of steelhead at any spatial scale. Assuming that steelhead are prevalent throughout the entire watershed. All users of this data should seek the assistance of qualified professionals such as surveyors, hydrologists, or fishery biologists as needed to ensure that such users possess complete, precise, and up to date information on steelhead distribution and water body location.
