KRIS Garcia River: Chart Page

Area Blue Waterhole Creek
Topic Temperature: FWA at Blue Waterhole Creek Site 1, 1993-2001
Caption:  This chart shows the floating weekly average temperature of Blue Waterhole Creek at FROG's Site #1, the upper most water temperature gage. Maximum floating weekly average temperature exceeded 19.0C in all years with a complete season of data. Based on a review of steelhead growth studies, Sullivan et al. (2000) found that compared to optimum temperatures, an MWAT of 17.0C reduced steelhead growth by 10%, and an MWAT of 19.0C reduced growth by 20%. This reach is rather warm for a headwater area but it drains grasslands in part, which sometimes have sparse riparian. Data contributed by the Friends of the Garcia River. See InfoLinks for more information or Maps to see locations.
