Pullen Creek Barrier Removal on the North Fork Toutle


During the summer of 2024, A barrier culvert on Pullen Creek, part of the North Fork Toutle Watershed, will be replaced with a fish-passable structure, restoring access to 2.6 miles of habitat for coho, steelhead, and sea-run cutthroat trout.


The purpose of this project is to improve fish passage by removing a barrier culvert and associated fill from the creek and replacing it with a 54’ concrete bridge. This project will restore access to 2.6 miles of habitat for sea-run cutthroat trout, coho, steelhead, and lamprey eels. The site is also a drop point for fish transported around the North Fork Toutle Sediment Retention Structure.
