KRIS Battle Creek: Chart Page

Area North Fork Battle
Topic Temperature: Min, Max, Avg at North Fork Battle near Mouth 1996
Caption:  This temperature graph shows minimum, maximum, and average water temperatures on North Fork Battle Creek above the South Fork Confluence in 1996. Thresholds shown on the graph above are for the egg life history stage before July 1 for winter chinook and after September 15 for spring chinook eggs and for holding adults spring chinook during summer. Average daily water temperatures pushed above stressful (58 F) for incubating eggs of winter run in June but were optimal for spring chinook eggs in late September. Holding adult spring chinook would have experienced some days of acute stress in July and August but average temperatures above 66 F were not sustained for long periods. Improved water temperatures in this reach are likely to accompany increased flows associated with restoration. See Info Links for more information on temperature thresholds.
