Beaver management update

Knife River Watershed

In the fall of 2006, 70 beaver and 84 dams were removed from the Knife River watershed. An additional 6 beaver and 11 dams were removed in the spring of 2007 before steelhead migrations. The 2007 fall beaver reconnaissance flight over the Knife River watershed took place on October 22 (Figure 9). The number of beaver dams was low in the lower 18 miles of the main stem and the lower third of most large tributaries, where removal effort has focused in past years.
