Title: Sediment in a Michigan trout stream, its source movement, and some effects on fish habitat.

Author: Hansen, Edward A.;

Date: 1971

Source: Research Paper NC-59. St. Paul, MN: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, North Central Forest Experiment Station

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: A sediment budget was constructed from 3 years of measurements on a pool and riffle stream. Total sediment load increased five times along a 26-mile length of stream; most sediment came from 204 eroding banks. Three-fourths of the total sediment load was sand size. The area of streambed covered with sand decreased downstream, indicating that the transporting capacity of the stream exceeded sediment supply. Complete streambank stabilization would reduce the sediment load by about half and probably result in streambed composition changes beneficial to trout.

Keywords: sediment, trout stream, fish habitat, streambank stabilization
