MacCoy, D.E., Shephard, Z.M., Benjamin, J.R., Vidergar, D.T., and Prisciandaro, A.F., 2017, Bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus) telemetry and associated habitat data collected in a geodatabase from the Upper Boise River, Southwestern Idaho: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


Bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus), listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, are among the more thermally sensitive of coldwater species in North America. The Boise River upstream of Arrowrock Dam in southwestern Idaho (including Arrowrock Reservoir) provides habitat for one of the southernmost populations of bull trout. The presence of the species in Arrowrock Reservoir poses implications for dam and reservoir operations. From 2011 to 2014, the Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Geological Survey collected fish telemetry data to improve understanding of bull trout distribution and movement in Arrowrock Reservoir and in the upper Boise River tributaries. The U.S. Geological Survey compiled the telemetry (fish location) [...]

This report describes the contents of a geodatabase developed to store bull trout telemetry and associated habitat data collected by Reclamation and USGS from the upper Boise River between 2011 and 2014. These data include individual fish information (such as total length and weight) for tagged fish; fish location information collected using radio and acoustic telemetry techniques; and river discharge, reservoir height, and water-quality data where available.
