The Clear Lake Hitch (Lavinia exilicauda chi) is an imperiled potamodromous cyprinid that undertakes rapid migrations from the single freshwater lake it occupies (Clear Lake, Lake County, California, USA) into seasonally-ephemeral tributary streams for spawning. Adult migration, spawning, embryo incubation, larval development, and juvenile emigration all occur during a short temporal window during the spring season when dry stream beds become temporarily inundated from seasonal rains. These data were collected to monitor the water temperature in key spawning tributaries.
