Description The Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology), Water Resources Program studied the relationship between fish habitat and stream flow in the Methow River basin using the Instream Flow Incremental Methodology (IFIM). Measurement sites included four sites on the Methow River, involving 32 transects, to represent 60 miles of the Methow River. Three study sites, involving 20 transects, were chosen to represent the lower miles of the Twisp River, Chewuch River, and Early Winters Creek.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
