The Finney Creek restoration project placed over 750 logs into more than 80 log jams in upper Finney Creek. the logs helped to trap gravel size sediments behind the jams and create a more narrow and deeper creek. This resulted in lowering water temperatures to provide more favorable spawning conditions. Finney Creek once provided habitat for all salmon species except sockeye.
