Summary

This data is a compilation of fishery monitoring data collected by state agencies over several decades in tailwaters downriver of dams in Colorado, Utah, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, New Mexico, Arizona, California, and Oregon. Specifically, the data contained herein is summary data used in four generalized linear mixed models that were developed to assess the biological and hydrologic factors that influence rainbow and brown trout recruitment and adult size in tailwaters across the western United States.

Purpose

This data is summary data used in models to determine which factors influence mean adult length and recruitment of trout species downriver of dams throughout the West. Four dependent variables were calculated across river systems/years and multiple independent variables were calculated using flow, biological, and reservoir data.
