The Little Susitna River—An ecological assessment. Final Report for the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation
Summary The Little Susitna River is an important recreational resource within south-central Alaska. The river supports five species of salmon and very popular Chinook and coho salmon fisheries. In 2004, 20,000 angler days were spent harvesting 45,000 coho, which is the second highest harvest level in south-central Alaska. Rapid increases in Matanuska-Susitna Borough populations and the river’s popularity have resulted in increased residential development and recreational use along the river. There is a potential for residential development and recreational use to cause a decrease in water quality and fish habitat. This study is the first step in characterizing the Little Susitna River from the Edgerton Road...

Comparison of Site Fidelity and Growth Rates of Juvenile Salmon between two Stream Types - A Pilot Study
A pilot study was conducted to evaluate the use of PIT tags and underwater antennas to measure juvenile salmon growth rates and site fidelity. Juvenile coho (Oncorhynchus kisutch) and Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytsha) growth rates and site fidelity were compared between two streams within the Susitna River drainage in Southcentral Alaska. The two study streams were selected to represent a low-sloped wetland stream which is common on the west side of the drainage and a moderate sloped upland stream that drains the Talkeetna mountains which is common on the east side of the drainage. Comparisons of growth rates and site fidelity within these two streams were used to test for the differences in the habitat quality...

Stream Water Temperatures Associated with Federal Subsistence Fisheries in Alaska. Prepared For the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Office of Subsistence Management
A stream water temperature monitoring project has been initiated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Office of Subsistence Management, at 29 stream locations throughout Alaska. Temperature monitoring will augment fisheries studies currently being conducted at these locations. The temperature monitoring project is being developed to provide consistent temperature data, from standard collection and reporting methods, for subsistence fishery management and to evaluate climate influence on stream temperatures and fish habitat. Stream water and air temperature loggers were checked for accuracy and distributed along with deployment instructions and data sheets to 29 sampling locations in 2008 and 2009. Sampling...
