Summary

In the Yukon Territory, monitoring, protecting, and restoring salmon habitat in streams affected by placer gold mining are critical activities because salmon fisheries and placer gold mining have important economic and social values. To provide information to help develop new placer mining guidelines, I conducted a field study to (1) evaluate a new tool to monitor fish habitat in small streams, including streams affected by placer mining, and (2) determine the importance of large woody debris (LWD) in providing fish habitat in small, boreal forest streams. Thalweg profiles are longitudinal profiles of streambed elevation measured along the deepest portion of a stream. This technique has recently been suggested as a monitoring tool [...]
