AUTHORS: Thad Huenemann, Gerald Mestl - Nebraska Game and Parks Commission

ABSTRACT: A river top-widening project on Lower Little Sioux Bend, named Deer Island, is located at river kilometers 1,079 to 1,083 in the upper portion of the channelized Missouri River along Nebraska’s eastern border. A major construction project began in 2012 and was completed by fall of 2014. At approximately 55 hectares, this project represents the largest channel widening project completed under the proposed restoration action to create shallow water habitat in the Missouri River. An investigation of trends associated with the Macrhybopsis species (i.e. chubs) and available habitat using a newly developed habitat preference function at the site in 2015 will be presented. A further investigation of different modeled flow regimes across the post constructed site and available habitat for Macrhybopsis species will also be discussed.
